Data Processing Tools

Scope and Contents note

There are three example scripts which are used together for generating images from the datasets and projected fields. The scripts will produce the image files found in the Derived Data-Projections sub-component for each "Data at Redshift" component.

Use Instructions

To regenerate the images, the script "plot-fields.sh" must be modified to contain the location of the script named "plotarray" and the directory containing the light cone projections. The script "field_plot.py" must be in the same directory as "plotarray", or in the user's Python seach path.

Technical Requirements

The scripts were written to run in a POSIX environment using a combination of Bash, Python, and some supporting Python libaries. The specific Python libaries are NumPy , h5py , and Matplotlib .
