region module provides a polygon filling algorithm
skymatch to create data masks.
Polygon filling algorithm.
- class jwst.skymatch.region.Edge(name=None, start=None, stop=None, next=None)[source]¶
An edge has a “start” and “stop” (x,y) vertices and an entry in the GET table of a polygon. The GET entry is a list of these values:
[ymax, x_at_ymin, delta_x/delta_y]
Compute the entry for an edge in the current Active Edge Table
[ymax, x_intersect, 1/m] note: currently 1/m is not used
- property next¶
- property start¶
- property stop¶
- property ymax¶
- property ymin¶
- class jwst.skymatch.region.Polygon(rid, vertices, coord_system='Cartesian')[source]¶
Represents a 2D polygon region with multiple vertices
rid (string) – polygon id
vertices (list of (x,y) tuples or lists) – The list is ordered in such a way that when traversed in a counterclockwise direction, the enclosed area is the polygon. The last vertex must coincide with the first vertex, minimum 4 vertices are needed to define a triangle
coord_system (string) – coordinate system
This is the main function which scans the polygon and creates the mask
data (array) – the mask array it has all zeros initially, elements within a region are set to the region’s ID
(GET) (- Set the Global Edge Table) –
GET (- Set y to be the smallest y coordinate that has an entry in) –
empty (- Initialize the Active Edge Table (AET) to be) –
line (- For each scan) –
Add edges from GET to AET for which ymin==y
Remove edges from AET fro which ymax==y
Compute the intersection of the current scan line with all edges in the AET
Sort on X of intersection point
Set elements between pairs of X in the AET to the Edge’s ID
- class jwst.skymatch.region.Region(rid, coordinate_system)[source]¶
Base class for regions.
rid (int or string) – region ID
coordinate_system (astropy.wcs.CoordinateSystem instance or a string) – in the context of WCS this would be an instance of wcs.CoordinateSysem
Sets mask values to region id for all pixels within the region. Subclasses must define this method.
mask (ndarray) – a byte array with the shape of the observation to be used as a mask
mask – pixels which are not included in any region).
- Return type
array where the value of the elements is the region ID or 0 (for
