Return to directory of Todd's CASA extensions

Reads the antenna positions from the ASDM and makes a plot, similar to the plotants function in casa. See also plotAntennas and es.listobs2 for plotting antennas positions from a measurement set.


au.plotantsFromASDM(asdm, plotfile='', plotAntennasActualSize=True,
                 includeWeatherStations=False, includePadNames=False, 
                 buildPDF=True, dropWeatherStations=['MeteoItinerant'],
                 logarithmic=False, includeAntennas=True, title='', 
  • plotfile: name of png to produce, if plotfile==True, then generate a default name from the asdm.plotants.png
  • plotAntennasActualSize: if True, then the markers will be scaled to match antenna diameter. If the configuration is larger than 400m, and plotAntennasActualSize==True, then a second plot will be made zoomed into the inner array.
  • includeWeatherStations: if True, then also show the location of the weather stations
  • includePadNames: if True, then include the pad names in the label of each antenna
  • includeWeatherStations: if True, then also show the location of the weather stations
  • includeAntennas, title: only pertains to the logarithmic=True option
  • logarithmic: scale the antenna positions radially from their median position by their log
