0.1.121 smoothcal

Requires:

Synopsis
Smooth calibration solution(s) derived from one or more sources:

Description

A G- or T-type gain calibration can be smoothed. Amplitude and phase are currently smoothed with the same time. Calibration values will be smoothed over all fields.

allowed:

stringArray

Default:

smoothtype

Smoothing filter to use

Example

 
 
 
        A G- or T-type gain calibration can be smoothed.  The amplitude and  
phase smoothing times are currently the same.  Calibration values  
will be smoothed for only the specified fields.  Smoothing is  
        performed independently per field, per spw, and per antenna.  
 
        Keyword arguments:  
        vis -- Name of input visibility file  
                default: none; example: vis=’ngc5921.ms’  
        tablein -- Input calibration table (G or T)  
                default: none; example: tablein=’ngc5921.gcal’  
        caltable -- Output calibration table (smoothed)  
                default: ’’  (will overwrite tablein);  
                example: caltable=’ngc5921_smooth.gcal’  
        field -- subset of fields to select and smooth  
                default: ’’ means all; example: field=’0319_415_1,3C286’  
        smoothtype -- The smoothing filter to be used for both amp and phase  
                default: ’median’; example: smoothtype=’mean’  
                Options: ’median’,’mean’  
        smoothtime -- Smoothing filter time (sec)  
                default: 300.0; example: smoothtime=60.
