NAME

       NoiseChisel - detect signal in a noisy image

SYNOPSIS

       astnoisechisel [OPTION...] ASTRdata

DESCRIPTION

       NoiseChisel  is  part  of  GNU  Astronomy Utilities 0.8.  NoiseChisel Detects and segments
       signal  that  is  deeply  burried  in  noise.  It  employs  a  noise-based  detection  and
       segmentation  method  enabling  it to be very resilient to the rich diversity of shapes in
       astronomical targets.

       For more information, please run any of the following commands. In particular  the  second
       contains  a very comprehensive explanation of NoiseChisel's invocation: expected input(s),
       output(s), and a full description of all the options.

       All options and their values:
              $ astnoisechisel -P

       Inputs/Outputs and options:
              $ info astnoisechisel

       Full section in manual/book:
              $ info NoiseChisel

       Full Gnuastro manual/book:
              $ info gnuastro

       Gnuastro users and developers. For more information, please run:
