The European ARC Network invites users to an introduction to data visualisation using FRELLED, on December 8th, 11:00 CET [Zoom]. FRELLED is a new FITS viewer designed to explore 3D spectral line data and assist with visual source extraction and analysis, using the artistic software Blender.

In this tutorial, the basics of displaying 3D spectral line data cubes using FRELLED will be described. The tutorial will begin with a brief demo of the major capabilities of the software, followed by two step-by-step demonstrations. First, participants will look at how to optimise the display parameters to deal with a complex data set and convert this to a presentation-quality figure. The second demonstration will explore how to perform visual source extraction from a data cube.

Participants are encouraged to install the software and try and follow the demos during the live session. The software and full manual can be found here :
Please contact Rhys Taylor ahead of time if any installation issues are encountered. Mac users - we're working on it!

Data sets to use for the demonstrations will be provided closer to the session.

The duration of this training session will be about 45 minutes followed by a Q&A session. If you have any questions, please contact Rhys Taylor at rhysyt@gmail.com.

Tutor: Rhys Taylor

Note: The tutor's presentation will be recorded and an edited version of the recording will be posted in the Science Portal [I-TRAIN] after the session. The interactive Q&A will not be recorded.
