Purpose: Applies median filter for MIPS-Ge data on data cube of stacked BCDs images by subtracting median of the surrounding DCEs per pixel (temporal median filter per pixel)

Information and Download

Download medfilt.pro (PRO, 2 KB)

Please read the MIPS Data Handbook before using this code

medfilt.pro is called as follows:

IDL>medfilt,INcube,nn,OUTcube

where
INcube = stacked cube of bcd images
OUTcube = median filtered output cube
nn = full width filter size in DCEs

Users need to stack input BCDs into a cube before running. After medfilt correction, users need to split OUTcube into corrected BCDs and attach pointing information (headers) from the original BCD images before mosaicing the data. For small nn, users should not include the stim DCEs in the input data cube.

JPL, the SSC and IRSA claim no responsibility for this script. From the project point of view, this is unoffical software, provided as an example to users. Your mileage may vary.
