AHELP for CIAO 4.10 ChIPS v1


Context: contrib


Image routines for ChIPS (CIAO contributed package)


import chips_contrib.images
from chips_contrib.images import *


The chips_contrib.images module provides image-related routines for ChIPS, and is provided as part of the CIAO contributed scripts package.

Loading the routines

The module can be loaded into ChIPS, Sherpa or Python scripts by saying one of the following:

from chips_contrib.images import *
from chips_contrib.all import *

where the second line will load in all the ChIPS contributed routines, not just the imagess module.


This module currenly provides one routine:

Routine Description
imextent() Scale image axes from pixel coordinates to a physical scale. This routine is re-exported from crates_contrib.images since it is useful for ChIPS users; see "ahelp imextent" for more information.

Changes in the June 2012 Release

The chips_contrib.images module is new in this release.


See the bugs pages on the CIAO website for an up-to-date listing of known bugs.
