Bases: BaseMetric

Gaussian limit, ignoring systematic errors in photometry

pixscalefloat (0.2)

Pixelscale, Arcseconds per pixel

nsigmafloat (3)

The detection limit (usuall 3 or 5)

tot_areafloat (100)

Total sky area summed over, square arcseconds

zptdict of float (None)

telescope zeropoints. If None, computed from phot_utils

k_atmdict of float (None)

Atmospheric extinction parameters. If None, computed from phot_utils

readnoisefloat (8.8)

Readnoise in electrons

Methods Summary

run(data_slice, slice_point)

Calculate metric values.

Methods Documentation

run(data_slice, slice_point)

Calculate metric values.


Values passed to metric by the slicer, which the metric will use to calculate metric values at each slice_point.

slice_pointdict or None

Dictionary of slice_point metadata passed to each metric. E.g. the ra/dec of the healpix pixel or opsim fieldId.

metricValue: int float or object

The metric value at each slice_point.
