Up: Description of Associated Tasks
This task is a linear mosaicing tool, which makes an image cube from a
set of original CLEAned images (OR from a single CLEANed) image by di-
viding by the primary beam at each location.
The original images are assumed to have the same phase tracking center
and hence the same map characterictics (pixel, size, coordinates).
This program compute several images (or rather data cubes) :
'name'.lmv-sky a 3-d cube containing the uniform noise
combined mosaic, i.e. the sum of the product
of the fields by the .weight image.
The image names must derive from a generic name as follows (e.g. for a
generic name "map", and a generic type "lmv-clean")
map-1.lmv-clean, map-2.lmv-clean, ..., map-n.lmv-clean
where "n" is the number of fields.
The primary beam is assumed to be Gaussian. Two parameters are used in
the mosaic creation: the primary beam width (FWHM), and the truncation
threshold of the primary beam. It is recommended to use a relatively
high value for this threshold, 0.2 to 0.4, to avoid contaminating adja-
cent field in case of pointing errors.
