vmifucombinecube - Rearrange into cube format images of extracted
spectraproduced by vmifucalib, vmifuscience, and vmifustandard.
This recipe is used to rearrange into a single cube the images of extracted
spectra from different VIMOS quadrants. Such images are created by the recipes
vmifucalib, vmifuscience, and vmifustandard, and the classification tag of the
product depends on the classification tag of the inputs:
The input images must belong to different quadrants, so that they cannot be more
than 4. The allocated cubes are the smallest possible, depending on the number
of quadrants involved and on whether the IFU shutter was on or off. The
smallest cubes (20x20xN) are produced when just one quadrant is input and the
shutter was on. The largest cubes (80x80xN) are produced when 3 or more
quadrants are given in input (and when either quadrants 1 and 3, or 2 and 4,
are input), and the shutter was off. Pixels belonging to missing quadrants are
padded with zeroes if necessary.
Note that it is possible to create a configuration file containing these
options, along with suitable default values. Please refer to the details
provided by the 'esorex --help' command.
