compute and plot cta IRF

Project description

ctaplot is a collection of functions to make instrument response functions (IRF) and reconstruction quality-checks plots for Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes such as CTA

Given a list of reconstructed and simulated quantities, compute and plot the Instrument Response Functions such as:

  • angular resolution
  • energy resolution
  • effective surface
  • impact point resolution

You may find examples in the documentation. Or you can run a simple one here:

https://mybinder.org/badge_logo.svg

The CTA instrument response functions data used in ctaplot come from the CTA Consortium and Observatory and may be found on the cta-observatory website .

In cases for which the CTA instrument response functions are used in a research project, we ask to add the following acknowledgement in any resulting publication:

“This research has made use of the CTA instrument response functions provided by the CTA Consortium and Observatory, see http://www.cta-observatory.org/science/cta-performance/ (version prod3b-v2) for more details.”

Install

Requirements packages:

  • python > 3.6
  • numpy
  • scipy>=0.19
  • matplotlib>=2.0
  • astropy

We recommend the use of anaconda

The package is available through pip:

pip install ctaplot
export GAMMABOARD_DATA=path_to_the_data_directory

We recommend that you add this line to your bash source file ($HOME/.bashrc or $HOME/.bash_profile)

GammaBoard

A dashboard to show them all.

GammaBoard is a simple jupyter dashboard thought to display metrics assessing the reconstructions performances of Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes (IACTs). Deep learning is a lot about bookkeeping and trials and errors. GammaBoard ease this bookkeeping and allows quick comparison of the reconstruction performances of your machine learning experiments.

It is a working prototype used in CTA, especially by the [GammaLearn](https://gitlab.lapp.in2p3.fr/GammaLearn/) project.

Run GammaBoard

To launch the dashboard, you can simply try the command:

gammaboard

This will run a temporary copy of the dashboard (a jupyter notebook). Local changes that you make in the dashboard will be discarded afterwards.

GammaBoard is using data in a specific directory storing all your experiments files. This directory is known under $GAMMABOARD_DATA by default. However, you can change the path access at any time in the dashboard itself.

Demo

Here is a simple demo of GammaBoard:

  • On top the plots (metrics) such as angular resolution and energy resolution.
  • Below, the list of experiments in the user folder.

When an experiment is selected in the list, the data is automatically loaded, the metrics computed and displayed. A list of information provided during the training phase is also displayed. As many experiments results can be overlaid. When an experiment is deselected, it simply is removed from the plots.
