Single Dish




  • CASA UI demo. Done.
  • CASA Developer demo (Wes).Done.
  • CASA Distribution tests
    • --devel version. Required additional libraries. Patched. Done.

      • Use MS rather than SDFITS as input to script
      • migrate numarray to numpy (do this in general, i.e., get rid of numeric/numarray schism)
        • Evaluate performance issues between the libraries; isolate I/O versus in-memory manipulation; look at numarray page for comments on speed; get DM case for switching back to numeric; test on all systems (also look at memory problems between 2.4.2 and 2.5.x).
      • replace pointing pattern analysis with review of scan intent
      • fix asap so asapfit can be used rather than custom Python fitter
      • review/compare Python gridding to CASA facilities (replace if appropriate)
      • Migrate code to ASAP
        • polyorder finder
        • spectral 'cluster/clump' finder
