obspoint, a tool for checking the scan pattern

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 and Multi-Point 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 the Observe Table and click OK button.
