readStationsFromASDM

Return to directory of Todd's CASA extensions

This function uses the ASDM bindings from casapy-telcal and reads the Station positions from the Station.xml file ( in the ASDM) and returns a dictionary of station positions. The dictionary format is {'J503': [x,y,z], 'N605': etc.}. See also readStationFromASDM and readStationFromASDMKeyedByAntennaName for an alternative dictionary format.

Usage:

au.readStationsFromASDM(sdmfile)
  • sdmfile: name of the ASDM

Example:

CASA <13>: au.readStationsFromASDM('uid___A002_X8113a9_X370')
  Out[13]:
