5.1.8 sd.plotter - Tool

Single-dish specific plotter tool

This is a plotter object that is properly designed for single-dish tool. It supports stacking, multi-panel plotting, and multi-page plotting of spectral plot (channel/frequency/velocity versus spectral data). For total power (single-channel) data, it provides special function to plot total power data versus time. It also supports to plot time variation of azimuth and elevation and to plot pointing directions on the sky.

Known Issues

The multi-page plotting doesn’t support to go back previous page at the moment, it only allows to go forward.
