VLASS Calculator

Postby claw » Wed Mar 26, 2014 12:52 pm

Hi Everyone,
In the interest of coordinating planning between working groups, visualizing the VLASS proposals, and optimizing proposals, I've put together a calculator for VLASS planning. The calculator is in the format of an IPython notebook, which is essentially a Python script with visualizations built in. The key point is that it is easy to see the assumptions used and rerun the calculations.
Take a look at the current snapshot of the notebook at http://goo.gl/k8TGom. At present, only I can re-run the analysis, but it is trivial to do so. Ultimately, I'd like to make it possible for any of you to run it.
For now, I'd love to have feedback as to what you need:
-- Are the values used for the VLA parameters consistent with your assumptions?
-- Are the fields of interest included?
-- Are there visualizations you'd like to see?

thanks,
casey

Hi Casey,

Sorry for the essentially content-free reply, but: that's really cool! Great idea!

Content-free replies like that are always welcome!
I'm really digging the IPython notebook for this kind of work. Highly recommended.
