Input Table

In some applications there is no need to run the SEARCH program because a list of objects with accurate positions is already available. In this case, the ANALYSE command should be used with the NOVERIFY option. The ANALYSE command with the NOVERIFY option expects the values of the X and Y coordinates (in physical units) to be stored as columns in an input table. There are no limitations to the positions of these columns in that table. The columns are identified by the column labels :X_COORD and :Y_COORD. It is also possible to enter an isophotal radius for each object as input value. This mode is activated by setting the parameter ISOPHOTR to 1. The input table should have a column labeled with :RAD_ISO, which holds the isophotal radii.
