I am writing a new script related to the Plate-Solving
script that I wrote the last week. It will annotate images that have coordinates in the WCS convention.
The annotation will be designed by layers:
- Objects: It will use a catalog with nearly 10000 objects from the NGC and IC catalogs and it will draw a circle around the object and write a label with the catalog number and name of the object.
- Grid: the script will draw a grid with the equatorial coordinates of the image.
The user will be able to decide which layers and elements wants to draw. The graphics properties (color, transparency, line width,...) will be configurable.
I already have the kernel of the script, but I still haven't written the user interface. The annotation will be something like the attached image (the image is from gvanhau
). New ideas will be welcome.Latest version
This message will be kept updated with the latest versions of the scripts:
- ImageSolver v1.6
- AnnotateImage v1.2
