|AHELP for CIAO 4.6 Sherpa v1||
Apply an include filter to 2D data by dataset id
notice2d_id( ids, [val] )
The notice2d_id command specifies the region of 2D data to be included in the analysis. The filter is applied to the specified dataset ids; to operate on all datasets without having to list the ids, use the notice2d command ("ahelp notice2d").
- val - a filter defined by CIAO region syntax or a FITS or ASCII region filename (including path); default=None
The filter must be defined in the same coordinate system as the "coord" field of the data structure, which is returned by the get_coord command ("ahelp get_coord"). For information on the CIAO region filtering syntax, refer to "ahelp dmregions".
If the region definition on the Sherpa command line contains an arcsec or arcmin symbol, it must be escaped: \" or \' . The symbols do not need to be escaped if they are in a region file.
If no filter are supplied, all data points in the specified datasets are included. Noticing the entire set is a method of clearing any filters that have been applied.
The command is called without any filter, so all data points in datasets 1 and 2 are included.
sherpa> notice2d_id("src", "circle(275,275,50)")
A circular region defined in logical (image) coordinates is used to filter the dataset "src".
sherpa> notice2d_id(2, "box(3900.5,4120,189,188,0)+circle(4069,4250,20)")
Filter dataset 2 with a complex region (a rectangular plus a circle) in physical coordinates.
sherpa> notice2d_id(([2,4], "/data/src.reg")
Filter datasets 2 and 4 with the region stored in /data/src.reg. In this case, it is a circular region defined in WCS decimal coordinates:
sherpa> !cat /data/src.reg # Region file format: DS9 version 4.0 # Filename: fk5 circle(278.38973,-10.569072,51.998083")
sherpa> notice2d_id(1, "circle(18:33:33.468,-10:34:08.66,42.6351\")") sherpa> notice2d_id(1, "wcs.reg")
These commands are two equivalent ways of filtering dataset 1 with a region defined in WCS sexagesimal coordinates. The region file contains:
sherpa> !cat ~/src_wcs.reg circle(18:33:33.468,-10:34:08.66,42.6351")
Note that the arcsec symbol must be escaped on the Sherpa command line (\"), but does not need to be escaped when the region is given in a file.
