Package for analyzing geometric distortions of optical systems. This software is meant for quick-look inspection of distortion data sets.

Dependencies are

  • Python3.5 or higher
    • 3.5 or higher needed for matrix multiplication operator (@)
  • Matplotlib: e.g. pip install matplotlib
  • NumPy >= 1.14: e.g. pip install numpy=1.14
    • 1.14 or higher needed for encoding keyword to numpy.genfromtxt()
  • SciPy: e.g. pip install scipy
  • pandas: e.g. pip install pandas

Make sure that you are using the Python3 version of pip (explicitly pip3 ... or python3 -m pip ...) or conda, because otherwise the packages are not visible to the scripts.

The documentation is available at
If you want to build the documentation yourself, get Sphinx and run

$ make docupdate
$ make docbuild

Then open ./docs/build/html/index.html.

There are a few unit tests for the package, though not nearly extensive. Run with

$ python -m unittest discover --start-directory tests


$ make test
