# Difference between revisions of "AngularSeparationOfFields"

This function reads an ms and computes the angular separation of all fields, or only between those field names or IDs specified in the 'fields' parameter and the rest of the fields. The fields parameter can be either a list of IDs or names, or an individual ID or name. It computes great circle angle using the Vincenty formula.

## Examples

# In CASA
CASA <4>: au.angularSeparationOfFields('uid___A002_X49a70a_X4d8.ms', fields=[2])
