2. Back up your data

You can select a desired format for backup.

  1. NewStar (AIPS) format (for raw data, spectrum, and image)
    • Use a TASK FILE SERVICE (save to tape or disk: Very convenient for transfering data to other Newstar environment [e.g. export version])

  2. FITS format (for spectrum and image)
    • For spectrum: Use a TASK Sp FITS
      (Note: Format of FITS files for spectrum seems different at each observatory. FITS files of spectrum created at Nobeyama may not be compatible at other observatories.)
    • For image: Use a TASK Image FITS

  3. TEXT format (for spectrum)
A DAT tape is available at the stockroom. Please ask to the staff members.


3. Load your data

  1. NewStar (AIPS) format (for raw data, spectrum, and image)
    • Use a TASK FROM CMT (load from tape or disk)

  2. FITS format (for spectrum and image)
    • For spectrum: Save a FITS file somewhere in your directory. Then, use a TASK Sp FITS
    • For image: Save a FITS file in a directory /home/xxx/yyy/DA01X (for username=xxx, and project=yyy). Then you can load this FITS file to AIPS, for example, using AIPS TASKs FITLD, IMLOD,... The AIPS logical name of this directory is "DA01:". Or you can directly load FITS files from a tape using the same AIPS TASK.
      • How to use tape
        remhost 'name of I/O server' (m100u, m200u, ...)
        remtape 1 (1:rmt/0 2:rmt/1)
        intape 1
        mount
        ... operation of FITLD, etc. ...
        dismount
    • For image: Image FITS files can be loaded to IDL. IDL is installed in our server, and it can be used at workstations. For further details of Image FITS files, see section 4 of explanations on images.
