Raw data are passed to the map maker which are processed to produce a Frame image, which is then calibrated and displayed. A new Group image is created and displayed. The noise properties of the new Group image are calculated and written to a log file, log.noise.
This recipe will attempt to register the individual images (i.e. align the bright central source in all
observations) before coadding. If the source isn
’ t detected well enough to do this it will continue on,
with a warning in the log.
The current noise level is stored in log.noise.
For large amounts of data this recipe will spend a long time not updating the ORAC-DR output. Check to see that makemap is still processing by running top or ps.
Alternative configuration parameters for the iterative map-maker may be specified using the recipe parameters outlined below.
