Python Package to Interact with, Visualize, and Analyze the Wisconsin H-Alpha Mapper - Sky Survey
The whampy package provides an easy way to load, view, and do science with the Wisconsin H-Alpha Mapper (WHAM) Sky Survey. It provides the following main features:
- The ability to load the Sky Survey Data from the FITS table
- The ability to quickly plot sections of the sky with beam maps
- The ability to calculate moment maps and arithmetic using the data
You can install whampy using pip:
pip install whampy
To install the latest developer version of whampy you can type:
git clone https://github.com/Deech08/whampy.git cd whampy python setup.py install
You may need to add the
--user option to the last line if you do not
have root access.
You can also install the latest developer version in a single line with pip:
pip install git+https://github.com/Deech08/whampy.git
whampy contains some features that require additonal python packages that are included by default. If you would like to use some of these extra features, you will need to separately install those packages as well. These packages, with links to their documentation and installation instructions, are listed below.
The following two packages can be useful if working with the spectral-cube package along with whampy.
Here is a simple script demonstrating the modspectra package:
>>> from whampy.skySurvey import SkySurvey >>> # Load the Survey >>> survey = SkySurvey()>>> # Compute Moments >>> moment_0, err_0 = survey.moment(order = 0, return_sigma = True) >>> moment_1, err_1 = survey.moment(order = 1, return_sigma = True) >>> moment_2, err_2 = survey.moment(order = 2, return_sigma = True)
Complete documentation of the package and its funcationality can be found at the link below: whampy Documentation
