Panchromatic Swarp Imager
A multi-band image cutout routine for GAMA objects
This tool will create downloadable fits files and png images centred on your chosen positions or objects.
Accepts a semi-colon/space separated list of sources, with or without the preceeding 'G/g'. The range of available CATAIDs is 6802 - 6438620. The following are valid
- 65406 106376 238211
- g65406;79334; 106638;
- 65406; G6000001; 47500; 55095; G919207; 106638; G585632; G585655; G585597; G585589; G585614; G585617;
You can enter a single position in the RA, DEC boxes using either sexagesimal [HH:MM:SS DD:MM:SS] or degrees [RAdegs Decdegs] format. If the RA, DEC boxes are left blank, but a valid CATAID is provided, it will look up the corresponding RA and DEC.
User-uploaded files can be of type ascii, txt or text (MIME type text/plain) and less than 100kB. The file may be one of three formats; [RA, DEC], or [GAMA ID].
The following are valid;
- #RA dec
12:28:8.96234693960 , -11:14:15.35367885116
350.9392 , -47.05499
- 23:23:23.0, -8:09:59.09
Input preference is CATAID > RA, DEC > Uploaded File i.e., the CATAID field supersedes the Uploaded file. Please reset the form or delete inputs from other fields.
The maximum cutout radius allowed is 600''
The maximum number of sources*bands is 2000.

The tool allows creation of Greyscale PNGs, RGB PNGs, and fits images. Each of these options is available alone, or in combination.
All data used by the GAMA-PSI is described in Driver et. al (2015) and references therein.
