Name

fitssds - convert FITS to SDS HDF

Synopsis

fitssds [parameter=value]

Description

fitssds converts a fits(5NEMO) image file to an hdf(1) SDS dataset.

This current version was written to fit a particular purpose, and will only properly convert a FITS image/cube into a single 2D or 3D SDS dataset.

Parameters

The following parameters are recognized in any order if the keyword is also given:
in=fits_file
Input FITS file. No default.
out=sds_file
Output file (SDS HDF file). No default.

Bugs

No known bugs, but there are some limitations in the current version:

1) output SDS dataset will contain only one SDS, namely the one derived from the primary HDU. It will also be in single precision (IEEE-float32)

2) the whole dataset is read into memory, no slicing. Although this is fast, it limits the size of the cube to the (virtual) memory you have.

3) No fancy annotations or axis labelling.
