  • aerie-apps-make-significance-map needs a smoothed map file and for each input file, there must also be a weight after it
  • plot a significance map of the Crab Nebula like so "plotMercator.py limabin5.fits.gz --xyrange 80 88 18 25"
  • Make a combined significance map from multiple files like so:

    aerie-apps-make-significance-map --sensi cuts.txt --input SmoothedMaps /bin0smooth.fits.gz 0 SmoothedMaps /bin1smooth.fits.gz 1 SmoothedMaps /bin2smooth.fits.gz 2 SmoothedMaps /bin3smooth.fits.gz 3 SmoothedMaps /bin4smooth.fits.gz 4 SmoothedMaps /bin5smooth.fits.gz 5 SmoothedMaps /bin6smooth.fits.gz 6 SmoothedMaps /bin7smooth.fits.gz 7 SmoothedMaps /bin8smooth.fits.gz 8 SmoothedMaps /bin9smooth.fits.gz 9 -m -90 -M 90 -o limaCombined

  • Finished HW3

Following Hao's definition of Inner Galactic Plane , the map is separated into two regions:
  Longitutde Latitude
Galactic Plane [GP] 15-50\xB0 \xB1 4\xB0
Off Galactic Plane [OGP] everywhere else  
Started rough script to filter getHotspots.py for hotspots on the galactic plane.

Todo after rough script is complete:
  • Dict reader?
  • register dialect
  • commandline arguments
  • create an object for each hotspot
  • functionalize
  • check for header (assuming it exists for now, may not be necessary with if switched to DictReader)
  • write new file filtered for hotspots on the gPlane
  • plot hotspots
  • automatically parse .fits.gz?

  • modified plotErrorHist to take the input file as an argument rather than it being hardcoded
  • Ran plotErrorHist.py on some run logs from March 2015
    • This required adding two more error codes to the catalog.
