galplane_nvisits_thresholds¶
- rubin_sim.maf.metrics.galplane_nvisits_thresholds(tau_obs, nyears=10)¶
“Return estimated nvisits required to well-sample lightcurves that need sampling every tau_obs (days).
This does a very basic estimate, just counting how many visits you would have if you distributed them at tau_obs intervals for a period of nyears, assuming a season length of 6.5 years and that visits in each night are in pairs.
- Parameters:
- Returns:
- n_visits_thresholds
np.ndarray
