omqualitymap (omqualitymap-1.5) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]

Setting source quality-flag pixels using the QUALITY image

The algorithm works as follows

Loop through all the sources in the source-list and for each one:

  1. Convert the source RA and Dec to x and y image coordinates using the WCS keywords in the FITS header of the image file.
  2. Loop from bitnumber=0 to bitnumber=10
