Description : a fast widefield interferometric imager
WSClean (w-stacking clean) is a fast generic widefield imager. It uses the
w-stacking algorithm and can make use of the w-snapshot algorithm. As of
Feb 2014, it is 2-12 times faster than CASA's w-projection, depending on
the array configuration. It supports full-sky imaging and proper beam
correction for homogeneous dipole arrays such as the MWA.
WSClean allows Hogbom and Cotton-Schwab cleaning and has wideband, multiscale,
compressed sensing and joined-polarization deconvolution modes. All operations
are performed on the CPU.
It will maintained within the Debian Astronomy Working Group. A git repository
will be created on alioth .
