AHELP for CIAO 4.9 Sherpa v1


Context: modeling


Sends image of the unconvolved model component to ds9.


image_source_component([id], name, [newframe=False, tile=False]] )


The image_source_component command sends an image of one, or a combination of, individual 2D source model components to the imager (ds9) to allow the user to quickly visualize the contribution to the full model being used to fit the data. The model components will not be convolved with any assigned PSF convolution models; the image_model_component command is available for displaying convolved model components. By default, the image is sent to the same frame and the frames are not tiled.

  • id - the id of the data set to use; if not given, uses the default dataset id (id=1 by default, see "ahelp get_default_id")
  • name - variable name representing the model component
  • newframe - add a new frame; default=False
  • tile - tile image frame; default=False


sherpa> set_source(2, const2d.c1 + gauss2d.g1 + beta2d.b1)
sherpa> fit(2)
sherpa> image_source_component(2, g1+b1)

Display in DS9 an image of the sum of the unconvolved Gaussian 2D and Beta 2D model components "g1" and "b1" assigned to data set 2 with the image_source_component command.


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