Simulating Observations in CASA v3.0.1
This Page Under Construction
simdata is under active development, documentation may lag reality, please email rindebet at nrao.edu with any questions - It's my job to help you use this software
Steps to simulation
1. Install CASA
simdata inputs look like this:
the links below describe the various sections of inputs
3. Antenna List - how to specify the positions and diameters of your antennas or stations.
4. Specifying Observation - how to set up what/when/how you want to observe, and the output image details
5. Corrupting Observation - (Optional) For added realism, corrupt your visibilities with thermal and phase noise.
6. Deconvolve Image (Optional) Go back from the calculated visibilities to a synthesis image
