Return to directory of Todd's CASA extensions

Computes the angular separation (in degrees) between 2 specified fields in a measurement set, using msmd.phasecenter and the Vincenty formula. See also angularSeparationOfFields and angularSeparationOfFieldsFromSource.


angularSeparationOfTwoFields(vis, field1, field2, usemsmd='')
  • field1, field2: the field IDs (integers)
  • usemsmd: if specified, then use this existing instance of msmd rather than creating a new one
