nway

nway is a source cross-matching tool for arbitrarily many astronomical catalogues.

Features

  • Bayesian match probabilities based on astronomical sky coordinates (RA, DEC)
  • Works with arbitrarily many catalogues
  • Can handle varying errors
  • Can incorporate additional prior information, such as the magnitude or color distributions of the sources to match
  • Works accurately and fast in small areas and all-sky catalogues

Documentation

See the manual in the doc/ folder, https://github.com/JohannesBuchner/nway/raw/master/doc/nway-manual.pdf

A full worked example with demo catalogues is included.

Installation

The easiest way to install nway is with pip:

$ pip install nway

Add --user if you do not have admin privileges. Alternatively, download the source code and run "python setup.py install".

nway uses the following python packages:

  • numpy, scipy, matplotlib
  • astropy
  • tqdm
  • joblib
  • healpy
  • pandas

nway works with both Python 3 and Python 2 and various astropy versions.
