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.
I-TRAIN #20: 3D Data Visualisation with FRELLED
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
