mAddExec - Create a mosaic from images already in the same projection
mAddExec [-p imgdir] [-n(o-areas)] [-a mean|median] [-e(xact-size)] [-d level] [-s statusfile] [-x TilesSizeAxis0] [-y TileSizeAxis1] [-o OverlapAxis0] [-q OverlapAxis1] images.tbl template.hdr tiledir out.fits
Builds a series of outputs (which together make up a tiled output) through multiple executions of the mAdd modules.
-p imgdir Specifies path to directory containing reprojected images. If the -p switch is not included, mAdd will look for the input images in the current working directory. -n Co-addition ignores weighting by pixel areas and performs coaddition based only on pixel positions. Will not output an area image for the output image. -a type Select type of averaging to be done on accumulated pixel values (either mean or median). -e Enables exact size mode. The output image will match the header template exactly, instead of shrinking the output to fit the data. -d level Turns on debugging to the specified level (1-3). -s statusfile mAdd output and errors will be written to statusfile instead of stdout.
images.tbl ASCII table (generated by mImgtbl) containing metadata for all images to be coadded. template.hdr FITS header template to be used in generation of output FITS tiledir Directory to contain output tile images and header templates out.fits Prefix for output tile images
If successful, mAddExec creates a set of FITS tiles covering the area described in template.hdr, as well as matching "tiled" header files for each output tile.

The following example runs mAddExec on this set of images, generating a set of tiles conforming to the size and overlap specified on the command line: $ mAddExec -p proj -x 1000 -y 1000 images.tbl template.hdr tiles tile.fits [struct stat="OK", mTileHdr_count=4, mTileHdr_failed=0, mTileHdr_warning=0, mAdd_count=4, mAdd_failed=0, mAdd_warning=0, time=8] $ ls tiles tile_0_0.hdr tile_0_0.fits tile_0_0_area.fits tile_0_1.hdr tile_0_1.fits tile_0_1_area.fits tile_1_0.hdr tile_1_0.fits tile_1_0_area.fits tile_1_1.hdr tile_1_1.fits tile_1_1_area.fits
The drizzle algorithm has been implemented but has not been tested in this release. If a header template contains carriage returns (i.e., created/modified on a Windows machine), the cfitsio library will be unable to read it properly, resulting in the error: [struct stat="ERROR", status=207, msg="illegal character in keyword"] It is best for the background correction algorithms if the area described in the header template completely encloses all of the input images in their entirety. If parts of input images are "chopped off" by the header template, the background correction will be affected. We recommend you use an expanded header for the reprojection and background modeling steps, returning to the originally desired header size for the final coaddition. The default background matching assumes that there are no non-linear background variations in the individual images (and therefore in the overlap differences). If there is any uncertainty in this regard, it is safer to turn on the "level only" background matching (the "-l" flag in mBgModel.
