Converting Miriad data into MeasurementSet form

Postby ste616 » Mon Jul 01, 2013 12:26 pm

A new casacore task has been created recently, called importmiriad, that takes a Miriad data set and converts it to a MeasurementSet for use in casapy.

To support easy use of this task, a new Miriad task called uv2ms is now available.

This is a very easy task to use, as it only has three inputs: the name of the input Miriad dataset, the name of the output MS, and an optional flag to make Miriad fill in the MS weight table using the system temperatures.

The MeasurementSets that this task produces have been shown to work well in casapy. It should be possible to process the MS entirely within casapy, however there is still no other way of loading the data other than Miriad's atlod task.

At the moment the miriad task uv2ms is not supported in Mac OS X

The solution for the moment is to use a Linux machine. At CASS Kaputar or Serpens, for example, can be used to convert uv to ms files.

I have installed miriad (linux 64 binary) on Ubuntu 14.04 but can't get uv2ms to work. When I write "go" at the terminal prompt it replies:

go: No such file or directory
go: Failed to exec the subprocess

(same as on Mac OS X by the way)

Should I install miriad from source?

Thanks for your help
