FAKEMAP

Diagnostic tool to explore the effects of the map-making process on known sources

Description:

To test the response of the map-maker to different known astronomical sources, an external " fakemap" can be specified to provide an image of the sky that will produce additional astronomical signal to the time series. At present, the dimensions of this map must be identical to that of the real map. A typical procedure may involve: (i) produce a map with makemap; (ii) produce an image with simulated data with the same pixel dimensions; (iii) specify this new map for the " fakemap" parameter below. Note that this is a fully-parsed ndf identifier, so you can do things like:
