Example

 
# create a msplot tool.  
mp.open( msname=’./data/ngc7538.ms’);  
 
# Plot the antenna distribution.  
mp.plot( type=’array’ );  
 
# Plot the uv distances with the corrected data column plotted  
# over the data column  
mp.plotoptions( overplot=False, plotcolor=’chocolate’ );  
mp.plot( type=’uvdist’, value=’phase’ );  
mp.plotoptions( overplot=True, plotcolor=’lemonchiffon’ );  
mp.plot( type=’uvdist’, column=’corrected’, value=’phase’ );  
 
# Do an iterative plot on baselines, on the visibility amplitude/channel  
# plot.  We display 6 plots at a time.  
mp.clearplot();  
mp.plotoptions( subplot=231 );  
mp.plot( type=’vischannel’, column=’data’, value=’amp’, iteration=’baseline’ );  
mp.iterplotnext();  
mp.iterplotnext();  
mp.iterplotstop();
