UIUC people meet in Loomis



  • It is nearly impossible to display DS9 regions as solid colors, as requested by @roodman. We will have to find another solution.
  • read_mouse functionality will be enabled by default, with the display at the bottom of the image viewer, not in a box.
  • SLAC has installed the UIUC development code. @tony_johnson will show a demonstration at next week’s LSST meeting.
  • SLAC has a collection of images. @tony_johnson will make a repository, but he still needs to decide on the raft-scale header format first.
  • UIUC will not break the development branch before the LSST. meeting, but will work on completing the short term goals (see UIUC visualization status).

(Tony Johnson) #2

There are now many CCD images available here, for example:




These are collections of 9 CCD images (group them by the timestamp). You need a SLAC/confluence login to access them – Jon to you still have your id?

I have also put a couple of raft level images here:


which does not require login. These are 9 images combined into a single FITS image for use with Firefly. They have all of the headers from the individual files preserved. They have the pre/over scan areas removed, which may not really be what we want.

There is a picture of firefly running at SLAC displaying the “escher” image here:
