obspoint, a tool for checking your scan table

If you want to check whether your scan table is what you intend to make, a python script
obspoint.py
is useful (especially for OTF, random and grid map scan).
  1. After Generate & Send your Observe Table (i.e., after all procedure for making observing scripts), type at the prompt
    > obspoint.py
  2. GUI will be shown. Enter the project name where you made Observe Tables and click OK button.

  3. The script lists Observe Tables in your working directroy. Search and select the Observe Table which you are going to check the scan pattern.

  4. Check your scan pattern. The unit of X and Y axes is arcsecond. The origin is the source coordinate defined in Source Table. This script will produce the scan pattern even for FOREST.
