Module Description

AstroPVSlice module visualize Position Velocity (PV) Slices by providing customized controls over the GUI. This module provides a fast inspection tool with a PVSlice linked both with the 2D and 3D views. For creating PV Diagram (e.g., creating a curvilinear PV and save it as fits file), please use the Astro PV Diagram module.

Panels and their use



These shortcuts are available in the 2D Red slice view: 1. 'c': Activate/Deactivate the interaction "move ruler center" 2. move the mouse: will after activating the "move ruler center" will update the position of the ruler in the 2D/3D views and in the GUI.
