Bug#830124: ITP: wsclean -- a fast widefield interferometric imager

Package: wnpp
Owner: Gijs Molenaar <gijs@pythonic.nl>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : wsclean
  Version         : 1.11
  Upstream Author : André Offringa
* License         : GPL3
  Programming Lang: C++
  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 [1].
