class jwst.datamodels.NIRCAMGrismModel(init=None, displ=None, dispx=None, dispy=None, invdispl=None, invdispx=None, invdispy=None, orders=None, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: jwst.datamodels.ReferenceFileModel

A model for a reference file of type “specwcs” for NIRCAM WFSS.

This reference file contains the models for wave, x, and y polynomial solutions that describe dispersion through the grism.

  • displ (Model) – Nircam Grism wavelength dispersion model

  • dispx (Model) – Nircam Grism row dispersion model

  • dispy (Model) – Nircam Grism column dispersion model

  • invdispl (Model) – Nircam Grism inverse wavelength dispersion model

  • invdispx (Model) – Nircam Grism inverse row dispersion model

  • invdispy (Model) – Nircam Grism inverse column dispersion model

  • orders (Model) – NIRCAM Grism orders, matched to the array locations of the dispersion models

  • init (str, tuple, HDUList, ndarray, dict, None) –

    • None : Create a default data model with no shape.

    • tuple : Shape of the data array. Initialize with empty data array with shape specified by the.

    • file path: Initialize from the given file (FITS or ASDF)

    • readable file object: Initialize from the given file object

    • HDUList : Initialize from the given HDUList.

    • A numpy array: Used to initialize the data array

    • dict: The object model tree for the data model

  • schema (dict, str (optional)) – Tree of objects representing a JSON schema, or string naming a schema. The schema to use to understand the elements on the model. If not provided, the schema associated with this class will be used.

  • memmap (bool) – Turn memmap of FITS file on or off. (default: False). Ignored for ASDF files.

  • pass_invalid_values (bool or None) – If True, values that do not validate the schema will be added to the metadata. If False, they will be set to None. If None, value will be taken from the environmental PASS_INVALID_VALUES. Otherwise the default value is False.

  • strict_validation (bool or None) – If True, schema validation errors will generate an exception. If False, they will generate a warning. If None, value will be taken from the environmental STRICT_VALIDATION. Otherwise, the default value is False.

  • ignore_missing_extensions (bool) – When False, raise warnings when a file is read that contains metadata about extensions that are not available. Defaults to True.

  • kwargs (dict) – Additional arguments passed to lower level functions.

  • available built-in formats are (The) –
