  • The maximum memory value shown in the memory bar reflects more accurately the actual memory available to HIPE. This value can vary slightly during a HIPE session.
  • The Locale is established as English so that the decimal separator will be a dot even in computers with language settings that use a comma for it. This ensures proper processing of tasks relying on it being a dot.

Astronomical utilities

  • New package herschel.ia.toolbox.astro.healpix (based on JPL Healpix Java library).
  • Healpix interpolation functionality
Line: 85 to 81

Source extraction

 

Images

Display

  • Image Display uses less memory and is a lot faster. It is now possible to display large image without the need for an enormous amount of memory.
  • It is possible to set the standard cut levels which should be used in the preference panel.

  It is now possible to send the results of a query in the HSA User Interface directly to HIPE. The results will appear as TableDataset, allowing one to use the geometric search in the HSA UI (for instance), and directly use the result in a script, or save it to disk.

  • For Jython task developers: the following wrappers (decorators) have been added to support working with the EDT: execLater, execAndWait (similar to the SwingUtils functions). An example is provided in the source of ia_task tests (TestTaskForViewsEdt.py)

Systematic product generation

 

Data input-output

  • poolDataReader , poolDataWriter, loadObs, downObs and localStoreWriter removed : saveProduct and MyHSA (getObservation) contain a superset of their features.
  • Tables
Line: 171 to 145
 
  • Fix issues with WebStart applications (such as Aladin, HSA User Interface): Problems starting the applications on Windows XP, problems with automatic log-in.

HIFI Software Configuration and Properties

 

HIFI Calibration

  • Updates to table of unusable data frames
  • Quality flags are now raised for monitoring SEUs (Sudden Event Upsets)
Line: 313 to 283
 
    • For extended sources, the new calibration is more accurate
    • The new calibration should not impact point sources, thanks to the so-called "central to 3x3" correction performed in extractCentralSpectrum. That correction was not necessary in hipe 9.0, as it was implicitly contained in the flux calibration files. In hipe 10, by default no average mis-pointing is included in the calibration files anymore, hence this extra correction, making use of the flux distribution between the spaxels to estimate the mispointing and correct for it.

Photometry

Line: 324 to 290
 
  • Error maps in SPG10 level2 scan maps are produced by the task photCoverage2Noise, where error maps are derived from the coverage map and include cross-correlation noise.
  • The mask used for the masked-highpass filtering of the pixel timelines is now available as a map in level 2, in the extensions 'HPFmask'. It can be used to assess if the source of interest has been properly mask, in this case the photometry in the L2 point-source is reliable.

  • The PACS Data Reduction Guide (PDRG) now contains a chapter that describes the processing of data obtained with the chopped PS AOT.
