Frequently Asked Questions¶
If the instrument you would like to simulate is similar to one of the defaults (LSST, DES, CFHT), you can simply modify a few parameters. See the quickstart tutorial for examples. You can also define a new default survey configuration by modifying the file
descwl/survey.py. Instruments are described with a simple model that may not be sufficient for your needs: in this case, please create an issue describing what you are trying to do.
In case the existing output catalog does not already calculate the quantities you need, you can either write your own post-processor using the skeleton code provided, or else modify the
descwl/analysis.py file that generates the output catalog. In either case, feel free to create an issue to let us know what you are trying to do and get feedback.
