CADC file names (proxy) File Suffix Description Units Type Access Example
uxxxxxxxx_d0f.fits
uxxxxxxxx_d0m.fits
_D0F.FITS
_D0M.FITS
It contains the WF/PC-II image data with the readout from each CCD detector in each group. Hence from 1 to 4 groups may be present. The d0m is in multiextension format RAW u4vc0101r_d0f.fits
uxxxxxxxx_q0f.fits _Q0F.FITS The DQF must consist of short integers which indicate the quality of the corresponding pixel in the Science Image file. Zero valued pixels indicate "good" pixels in the Science Image file and nonzero valued pixels flag various problems or potential problems with their corresponding pixels. RAW u4vc0101r_q0f.fits
uxxxxxxxx_x0f.fits
uxxxxxxxx_x0m.fits
_X0F.FITS
_X0M.FITS
It contains the two "engineering" column and, for FULL mode, the 12 columns of overclocked pixels. The x0m is in multiextension format RAW u4vc0101r_x0f.fits
uxxxxxxxx_q1f.fits _Q1F.FITS The EED quality file must consist of short integers and have the same dimensions and number of groups as the EED file. Each pixel indicates the quality of the corresponding pixel in the EED file. Zero valued pixels are "good" pixels in the EED file and nonzero valued pixels flag various problems or potential problems with their corresponding pixels. RAW u4vc0101r_q1f.fits
uxxxxxxxx_shf.fits _SHF.FITS Telemetry values and spacecraft operation data. This file is not currently used by CALWP2. RAW u4vc0101r_shf.fits
uxxxxxxxx_pdq.fits _PDQ.FITS Text file containing jitter statistics and other data quality information RAW u4vc0101r_pdq.fits
uxxxxxxxx_c0f.fits
uxxxxxxxx_c0m.fits
_C0F.FITS
_C0M.FITS
It is in REAL format (although an option is available to provide FITS-like scaling to SHORT or LONG integers). Extreme values resulting from input data values outside of the range of the WF/PC-II AtoD converter (0 to 4095) are edited to limit the range of values in the output image. These pixels are set to the value of the keyword RSDPFILL and flagged in the DQF. The c0m is in multiextension format CAL u4vc0101r_c0f.fits
uxxxxxxxx_c1f.fits
uxxxxxxxx_c1m.fits
_C1F.FITS
_C1M.FITS
The DQF for the Calibrated Science Image file follows the same conventions as the Science Image Data Quality file. This contains the result of bitwise ORing, the input DQF, and all DQFs associated with reference files used in the processing of the Science Image file. The c1m is in multiextension format CAL u4vc0101r_c1f.fits
uxxxxxxxx_drz.fits _DRZ.FITS Multidrizzled calibrated science image file at WF scale
CAL u4vc0101r_drz.fits
uxxxxxxxx_drzpc.fits _DRZPC.FITS Multidrizzled calibrated science image for the PC chip only CAL u4vc0101r_drzpc.fits
uxxxxxxxx_trl.fits _TRL.FITS Trailer file is a log file for the raw production step RAW u4vc0101r_trl.fits
uxxxxxxxx_jitter.png _JITTER.PNG Graphical representation of the Jitter ball OMS u4vc0101r_jitter.png
uxxxxxxxx_prev.fits _PREV.FITS Preview file in fits format PREVIEW u4vc0101r_prev.fits
uxxxxxxxx_prev.png _PREV.PNG Preview file in PNG format PREVIEW u4vc0101r_prev.png
