DESCRIPTION

IMSTORE is a Miriad task which dumps or tabulates a region of an image in a format suitable for other programs. Different output modes can be selected. See also IMLIST and IMTAB for similar functionality.  

PARAMETERS

in
The input file name. No default.
region
The region of interest of the input. Default is the entire input. Full region specifations are supported. Note: 3D datacubes do not display their 3rd coordinate.
clip
Only image pixels above the clip value are written. The default is all data.
scale
Scale factor with which the image data is multiplied before output. The default is 1. Note this scaling is done before the clip test (as described above).
mode
Output mode. This determines the format of the output. Currently accepted are: dump, uvgen and nemo. The default is dump.

mode=dump writes out the values of the selected pixel, only, with there being 8 pixels per line.

mode=uvgen produces an output suitable for input to uvgen.

      FLUX,DRA,DDEC,WMAJ,WMIN,WPA,POLN,POLPA
where the last 5 parameters are set to 0.0. DRA and DDEC are given in arcsec w.r.t. the reference pixel if the axis type is a recognized astronomical one.

mode=nemo outputs in the format:

      DRA, DDEC, FLUX
format
Override the default mode-dependant output format. Default: none. Note: The format specification must be a legal fortran format, including the parenthesis; e.g. ``format=(3F20.10)''
units
Units of the output axes. Valid options are "absolute" and "relative" (with respect to the reference pixel). If an axis is a known astronomical coordinate system, the units are displayed in arcsecs. The default is "relative".
log
The output log file. The default is the terminal.
