VMIFUCOMBINECUBE(7) vimos recipes VMIFUCOMBINECUBE(7)

NAME

vmifucombinecube - Rearrange into cube format images of extracted spectraproduced by vmifucalib, vmifuscience, and vmifustandard.

SYNOPSIS

esorex vmifucombinecube [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

This recipe is used to rearrange into a single cube the images of extracted spectra from different VIMOS quadrants. Such images are created by the recipes vmifucalib, vmifuscience, and vmifustandard, and the classification tag of the product depends on the classification tag of the inputs:

Input Output

IFU_ARC_SPECTRUM_EXTRACTED IFU_ARC_SPECTRUM_CUBE IFU_FLAT_SPECTRUM_EXTRACTED IFU_FLAT_SPECTRUM_CUBE IFU_SCIENCE_REDUCED IFU_SCIENCE_CUBE IFU_SCIENCE_FLUX_REDUCED IFU_SCIENCE_FLUX_CUBE IFU_STANDARD_REDUCED IFU_STANDARD_CUBE

The input images must belong to different quadrants, so that they cannot be more than 4. The allocated cubes are the smallest possible, depending on the number of quadrants involved and on whether the IFU shutter was on or off. The smallest cubes (20x20xN) are produced when just one quadrant is input and the shutter was on. The largest cubes (80x80xN) are produced when 3 or more quadrants are given in input (and when either quadrants 1 and 3, or 2 and 4, are input), and the shutter was off. Pixels belonging to missing quadrants are padded with zeroes if necessary.

OPTIONS

Note that it is possible to create a configuration file containing these options, along with suitable default values. Please refer to the details provided by the 'esorex --help' command.
