h1. Using Guider and Navigation Plots
2 1 Marc testing Mengel
3 1 Marc testing Mengel
These are simple python tools for generating plots.

h2. The Guider Plots
6 1 Marc testing Mengel
7 1 Marc testing Mengel
1. Log into DECamObserver@observer2.
8 1 Marc testing Mengel
2. cd annis/GuiderPlots
9 1 Marc testing Mengel
2.5 bash
10 1 Marc testing Mengel
3. source ./Guider_Plots
11 1 Marc testing Mengel
4. After the python window starts,:
12 1 Marc testing Mengel
In [1]: plt.clf(); guider.plot(163529)
13 1 Marc testing Mengel
14 1 Marc testing Mengel
In order to save a guider plot, hit the "floppy disk" icon
15 1 Marc testing Mengel
on the Figure 1 window with the guider plot.

The navigation plot uses data from quick reduce. The
34 1 Marc testing Mengel
green points are "useful" data taken since Oct 1, 2012,
35 1 Marc testing Mengel
if they are from a Main Survey program. The red dots are
36 1 Marc testing Mengel
data taken tonight, if they are from a Main Survey program.
37 1 Marc testing Mengel
The letters are the SN fields. The contours are lines of constant
38 1 Marc testing Mengel
airmass. These are calculated for now; re-issuing the command
39 1 Marc testing Mengel
changes both the airmass and the data taken today.

41 1 Marc testing Mengel
The bottom right plot is the data rate plot.
42 1 Marc testing Mengel
On average the DES takes 150 images per night
43 1 Marc testing Mengel
in the Main Survey program. This number is just
44 1 Marc testing Mengel
2*5*5000sq-deg/105 nights,  divided by the tiling
45 1 Marc testing Mengel
area of the camera, pi sq-degrees. We don't have 
46 1 Marc testing Mengel
to do this every night: for example the SN fields don't
47 1 Marc testing Mengel
count. Over a week or two time scale we should average
48 1 Marc testing Mengel
150 images/night.  
49 1 Marc testing Mengel
50 1 Marc testing Mengel
The blue is "useful" data: we'd do science with it.
51 1 Marc testing Mengel
The green is "good" data: closer to what we expect
52 1 Marc testing Mengel
the survey to perform. The last class, "survey quality"
53 1 Marc testing Mengel
is a work in progress. One it is defined, it is survey quality
54 1 Marc testing Mengel
images that have to average 150 images/night.
