NAME ^

Astro::FITS::HdrTrans::JCMT_GSD_DB - JCMT GSD Database header translations

DESCRIPTION ^

Converts information contained in JCMT heterodyne database headers to and from generic headers. See Astro::FITS::HdrTrans for a list of generic headers.

METHODS ^

can_translate

Returns true if the supplied headers can be handled by this class.

  $cando = $class->can_translate( \%hdrs );

For this class, the method will return true if the "GSDFILE" header exists and the "SCA#" header exist.

COMPLEX CONVERSIONS ^

These methods are more complicated than a simple mapping. We have to provide both from- and to-FITS conversions All these routines are methods and the to_ routines all take a reference to a hash and return the translated value (a many-to-one mapping) The from_ methods take a reference to a generic hash and return a translated hash (sometimes these are many-to-many)

to_INSTRUMENT

Sets the INSTRUMENT generic header. For RxA3i, sets the value to RXA3. For RxB, sets the value to RXB3.

to_OBSERVATION_ID

Calculate a unique Observation ID.

to_UTDATE

Translates the DATE_OBS or LONGDATEOBS header into a YYYYMMDD integer.

to_UTSTART

Translates the DB date header into a Time::Piece object.

to_UTEND

Translates the database date header into a Time::Piece object and adds on the exposure time.

to_BANDWIDTH_MODE

Uses the NORSECT (number of backend sections), NOFCHAN (number of frontend output channels) and NOBCHAN (number of channels) to form a string that is of the format 250MHzx2048. To obtain this, the bandwidth (250MHz in this example) is calculated as 125MHz * NORSECT / NOFCHAN. The number of channels is taken directly and not manipulated in any way.

If appropriate, the bandwidth may be given in GHz.

to_EXPOSURE_TIME
to_SYSTEM_VELOCITY

Translate the VREF and C12VDEF headers into one combined header.
