CARMA Calibrator Locator

How to install xplore

To run: execute xplore, and update the calibrator flux files by clicking on File...Update. This will download the appropriate files in your $HOME/.xplore_support/ directory. You can change the flux wavelength band displayed with View...Wavelength Band.

In this figure the user clicked on the yellow square just left of the center field, representing 3C279. A graph of the flux as a function of time will then show up.

Additional Hacks:
  1. For solar system objects, the MIRIAD "planets" program is used to provide a low accuracy ephemeris (via cgi-bin at UMD)

A mirror of the xplore software should be found at the Cedar Flat CARMA Observing Tools page.
