0.1.44 importatca

Requires:

Synopsis
Import ATCA RPFITS file(s) to a measurement set

Description

Imports an arbitrary number of ATCA RPFITS format data sets into a casa measurement set. If more than one band is present, they will be put in the same measurement set but in a separate spectral window. The task will handle both old ATCA and new CABB (after April 2009) archive data.

Example

 
      importatca([’2001-01-02_1*.C999’,’2001-01-03_0*.C999’],’c999.ms’,  
      options=’birdie,reweight’,edge=10)  
      Imports a number of ATCA RPFITS-format data sets into  
      a casa measurement set. We are applying birdie flagging and lag spectrum reweighting  
      (as approriate for old 33 channel continuum data) as well as flagging the 10% edge channels.
