NAME

       mAddExec - Create a mosaic from images already in the same projection

SYNOPSIS

       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

DESCRIPTION

       Builds  a  series  of  outputs  (which  together  make up a tiled output) through multiple
       executions of the mAdd modules.

OPTIONS

       -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.

ARGUMENTS

       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

RESULT

       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.

EXAMPLES

       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

BUGS

       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.
