Mask Resource Needs

Number/name of Requirement or Goal:

Mask 1-4 (following the numbering of the Requirements and Goals wiki page)

DECam observations

  • Field(s) to observe:
    all science fields with no anomalous noise sources (single-epoch, coadd)
  • Number, duration of exposures per filter:
    single-epoch and coadd, to check Mangle mask generation in both cases
  • Dithering / tiling pattern:
    as in main survey
  • Sky conditions needed (seeing, photometric, moon phase, etc:):
    as typical for main survey
  • Other timing constraints:
    none

Data processing needs

Which of the following products would you need to conduct the test:

  • Single-exposure object catalogs? Yes
    • with astrometric solution accurate to: not needed
    • and photometric zeropoint accurate to: <5%
    • Only need bright stars, or also want galaxy magnitudes? MAG_APER (2 arcsec-radius), MAGERR_APER for all objects
  • Catalogs from coadds? Yes
    • with photometric zeropoint (and/or colors) accurate to: depends on requirements S/G separation code
  • Other: Mangle mask, ideally automatically generated by DESDM

Telescope or other engineering data

External data sets

None needed.

Codes and scripts for analysing the test data

Mangle tools, python, topcat.

Personnel:

Are there real-time decisions to be made during the observations? no

How quickly can / must the data be available and analysed? not urgent (it's a goal, not a requirement)

Who will do it, and where? Anybody, anywhere (but Nacho volunteers)
