SDM Summary

The task listsdm summarizes the content of archival data in the format that is used by ALMA and the VLA for visibility data transport and archiving (the Science Data Model, known as ASDM for ALMA). The output in the casalog is very similar to that of listobs, which reads the metadata after conversion to a MeasurementSet (see next section). listsdm therefore does not require the SDM to be filled into an MS. The output of listsdm is also returned as a dictionary.
