Shortcuts to UW SSG eLSST tools
If there is another tool you think would be useful, please contact us.
There are two main python classes (Sed.py and
Bandpass.py) to help you with calculating magnitudes and you can download the throughput curves from the LSST GIT repository at
http://dev.lsstcorp.org/cgit/LSST/sims/throughputs.git/snapshot/throughputs-1.2.tar.gz (and the baseline filter set will be in the 'baseline' directory). More information is available on the magnitudes and filters page.
Quick Query Tool
Online here This is a little out of date, as it does not include the current 'latest' OpSim simulation, but should give you an idea of what we could do for quick online database access. It's best to download the actual database yourself and query that directly.
Lightcurve Interpolation Tool
interpolator.tar.gz: A tarball containing
several python example scripts and the python classes (in interpolator/Interpolator)
that interface with the UW opsim database, calculate the magnitude interpolation, and return
the 'observed' magnitudes and errors.
fieldsamples: a text file with some sample field pointings observed at difference cadences.
Self Calibration Simulation Tool
ToySelfCalib.pdf: Documentation for the simself
The full self calibration code can be downloaded from the LSST GIT repository, which contains C++ code to calculate the self calibration (solver) and python code to generate artificial data (generation) and analyze the outputs (analysis). At this point, you might find the LSST software stack helpful (particularly as there are now some uses of other LSST packages within the self-calibration simulation software), so please have a look at Installing the LSST Software Stack from LSST Data Management.
