Running the Addstar Stage

The Addstar Stage of the IPP is used to ingest images and detections into a DVO database.

  • load the addstar module in pantasks (server mode example):
    server module
  • define addstar runs as desired with 'addtool':
    addtool -dbname gpc1 -definebyquery -set_dvodb /data/ipp009.0/gpc1/catdir.example [other options as desired]
    Note that the option '-image-only' creates a DVO database with image metadata and no detections, allowing for a quick visualization of the images
