VOI Mosaic Service

Mosaic Service allows users to make mosaic of images retrieved from SDSS, 2MASS and HST image servers. SWarp and SExtractor are the tools used to make mosaic of the fetched images. STIFF is used to generate tiff images from FITS images produced by CUTOUT and MOSAIC tasks. All the three tools are developed by Emmanuel Bertin.

Besides an input form, service also provides an interactive way of selecting a region on Google Sky. User can also upload a file containing a list of RA, DEC, mosaic width and height. Alternatively, he can also type an URL pointing to such file or can paste the list in the text area provided.

All retrieved and generated FITS files can be loaded in Aladin or can be downloaded. TIFF images of the FITS files are also provided.

Please click here to access the service.
