Module Description

The Modeling module is a C++ SlicerAstro wrapping of 3DBAROLO [1], a 3D algorithm to derive rotation curves of galaxies, developed by Enrico di Teodoro (Australian National University).
In addition, SlicerAstro provides an easy and interactive interface for comparing the automated-generated models with the data.
It is also possible to edit the value of each parameter for each ring of the tilted-ring model for refining the analysis of the kinematics of the galaxy in study.
