In addition to Atlantis, there's also the Virtual Point 1 (VP1) event display software for ATLAS; however, unlike Atlantis, VP1 runs on ESD/AOD files, so there's no intermediate conversion process that needs to take place between getting files from the GRID and opening them in VP1. The official webpage can be found here. The biggest difference however is that VP1 provides a full 3D reconstruction of the event.

How to Setup

In order to run VP1, you must have your Athena sourced and then just run
vp1

You can also load in an ESD file with VP1 when you open it. Type
vp1 myfile.pool.root
If you want to open more than one file you can specify them like this
vp1 myfile2.pool.root myfile1.pool.root myfile3.pool.root

For a full list of options and commands you can type
vp1 -h
to bring up the help menu.

Once VP1 loads, you can displays the tracks and hits in the calorimeter via the following:

This is useful for a couple of events, but it would be nice if there was a way to automate the whole process. The following command will read in events and output an image for each automatically!

atlantis -c configfile.xml -m colorfile.xml -o ./ 1024x682 -p 1 eventfile.xml
 

The "eventfile.xml" in the above line should be the first event file in the directory. Atlantis will load that and run through all subsequent evet files (by descending number), creating an image for each. If the output filename isn't specifed, each file will be named after the run number and event number. The output format is hard coded to .png in the version of Atlantis I use (16.6.5.3). There is an option in the latest version of Atlantis (AtlantisJava-09-16-01-02) to output files in the .eps format. The command is "--outputformat eps", but I haven't tried this.

Example: Creating Event Displays

Let's use the four .xml files from the Z' analysis and create an event display for each. They can be downloaded here:
  1. JiveXML_180400_77876087.xml
  2. JiveXML_180400_79792562.xml
  3. JiveXML_182456_55629595.xml
  4. JiveXML_183462_48979599.xml

The configuration file and colormap can be downloaded here:
  1. Z_colormap.xml
  2. Z_config.XML

Type
atlantis -c Z_config.xml -m Z_colormap.xml -o ./ 1024x682 -p 1 ./JiveXML_180400_77876087.xml
The output files will be given the name name as the input. You'll get something that looks like this: JiveXML_180400_77876087

To load a file directly into Atlantis, type
Atlantis eventfile.xml

Configuring Atlantis

Instead of having to reconfigure Atlantis each time you open it, you can load in a particular color scheme and configuration file via command line.

Saving/Loading a Color Scheme

To create a new color scheme,
  1. Open atlantis
  2. Go to preferences,
  3. Click on Color Map Editor
  4. Click on the box with coordinates: 8, default(1)
  5. Select black in the bottom left hand corner
  6. click ok twice.

Now the background color should be black. To save this color scheme, 1. Go to preferences. 1. Click on save current color map.

To load this color scheme into atlantis, type
atlantis -c colormapfilename.xml

Saving/Loading a Configuration File

Creating and saving a configuration file is the same in principle as creating a color scheme, but there are vastly more options available. When making event displays for the Z' analysis, I had multiple settings enabled and disabled relevant to the calorimetry, as well as certain cuts on the data (e.g. only display tracks with a pt > 5.0 GeV/c). The settings you select are entirely based on what kind of analysis you're performing and what exactly you want to display.

To create a configuration File,
  1. Configure the event display the way you want it,
  2. Go to perferences
  3. Click on Save Current Configuration.
  4. Give it a relevent name like "Z_Prime_Configuration_File".

Now you can open Atlantis with this file each time and it will load the settings and cuts you have defined in your configuration file. To load this configuration, type
atlantis -m configurationfilename.xml

To Load them both simultaneously along with a file, type
atlantis -c colormapfile.xml -m configurationfile.xml eventfile.xml

Relevant Command Line Settings

  • To load a color scheme use
    -m colorfile.xml
  • To load a configuration file use
     c configfile.xml
  • To define relevant output options
    -o widthxheight outputname.xml
  • To set the output rate in seconds
    -p pause
  • To bring up the help menu, type
    Atlantis --help
