Parameters

This section documents the parameters recognized by this task (if any).

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
imagesetyesfilenameimage.fits 
Name of EPIC FITS image
 
attitudesetyesfilenameattitude.fits 
Name of attitude file
 
eventsetyesfilenameevents.fits 
Event file (for input of bad pixel and exposure extensions)
 
expimagesetyeslist of filenamesexpimage.fits 
Names of output exposure images
 
withdetcoordsnobooleanfalse 
If true the exposure map will be output in detector coordinates. In this case, bin type of input images has to be DETX, DETY.
 
usedssnobooleantrue 
Set to true to make the program read time selections performed on the dataset$^2$
 
withvignettingnobooleantrue 
if set to true exposure map will include vignetting
 
usefastpixelizationnobooleantrue 
if set to true a speed increase of up to a factor of two is achieved, at the cost of inaccurate exposures values in border pixels
 
withpatternsnobooleantrue 
If true event patterns will be read from parameter 'pattern'; if false the data subspace extension of the dataset will be accessed instead (not yet implemented)
 
patternnostring' ' 
Event pattern types may be specified in the following format (example): '0 1 2' for pattern types 0 to 2 (0 referring to single events) $^1$
 
badcleannointeger [0$<$param$<$5]
Cleaning around bad pixels and borders: Value 1 will exclude 4 immediately neighbouring pixels; value 2 will also exclude diagonal pixels (see section description)
 
attrebinnofloat4.0[0.0$<$param$<$60.0]
Positional accuracy parameter (arcseconds), changes in the attitude less than attrebin are ignored when rebinning the attitude data.
 
useoffsetnobooleantrue 
use information on EPN offset columns
 
hducutnofloat0.0[0.0$<$param$<$1000.0]
threshold for column offset; columns with offsets $>$ hducut will be excluded
 
piminnointeger2000[0$<$param$<$30000]
Lower energy boundaries of exposure images
 
pimaxnointeger4500[0$<$param$<$30000]
Higher energy boundaries of exposure images
 
ParameterMand Type Default Constraints

$^1$ Note that in the current calibration database PN pattern type 1 refers to all non-single events.
$^2$ DSS support is currently limited to TIME range and gti filters, as well as to CCDNR selections. Note that parameter writedss of task evselect must be set to true when creating the input image for task eexpmap.
