GroupExposuresTask

class lsst.obs.base.GroupExposuresTask(config: lsst.obs.base.defineVisits.GroupExposuresConfig, **kwargs)

Bases: lsst.pipe.base.Task

Abstract base class for the subtask of DefineVisitsTask that is responsible for grouping exposures into visits.

Subclasses should be registered with GroupExposuresTask.registry to enable use by DefineVisitsTask, and should generally correspond to a particular ‘visit_system’ dimension value. They are also responsible for defining visit IDs and names that are unique across all visit systems in use by an instrument.

Parameters:
config : GroupExposuresConfig

Configuration information.

**kwargs

Additional keyword arguments forwarded to the Task constructor.

Methods Documentation

emptyMetadata()

Empty (clear) the metadata for this Task and all sub-Tasks.

getAllSchemaCatalogs()

Get schema catalogs for all tasks in the hierarchy, combining the results into a single dict.

Returns:
schemacatalogs : dict

Keys are butler dataset type, values are a empty catalog (an instance of the appropriate lsst.afw.table Catalog type) for all tasks in the hierarchy, from the top-level task down through all subtasks.

Notes

This method may be called on any task in the hierarchy; it will return the same answer, regardless.

The default implementation should always suffice. If your subtask uses schemas the override Task.getSchemaCatalogs, not this method.

getFullMetadata()

Get metadata for all tasks.

Returns:
metadata : lsst.daf.base.PropertySet

The PropertySet keys are the full task name. Values are metadata for the top-level task and all subtasks, sub-subtasks, etc.

Notes

The returned metadata includes timing information (if @timer.timeMethod is used) and any metadata set by the task. The name of each item consists of the full task name with . replaced by :, followed by . and the name of the item, e.g.:

topLevelTaskName:subtaskName:subsubtaskName.itemName

using : in the full task name disambiguates the rare situation that a task has a subtask and a metadata item with the same name.

getFullName()

Get the task name as a hierarchical name including parent task names.

Returns:
fullName : str

The full name consists of the name of the parent task and each subtask separated by periods. For example:

  • The full name of top-level task “top” is simply “top”.
  • The full name of subtask “sub” of top-level task “top” is “top.sub”.
  • The full name of subtask “sub2” of subtask “sub” of top-level task “top” is “top.sub.sub2”.
getName()

Get the name of the task.

Returns:
taskName : str

Name of the task.

getFullName
getSchemaCatalogs()

Get the schemas generated by this task.

Returns:
schemaCatalogs : dict

Keys are butler dataset type, values are an empty catalog (an instance of the appropriate lsst.afw.table Catalog type) for this task.

Task.getAllSchemaCatalogs

Notes

Warning

Subclasses that use schemas must override this method. The default implementation returns an empty dict.

This method may be called at any time after the Task is constructed, which means that all task schemas should be computed at construction time, not when data is actually processed. This reflects the philosophy that the schema should not depend on the data.

Returning catalogs rather than just schemas allows us to save e.g. slots for SourceCatalog as well.

getTaskDict()

Get a dictionary of all tasks as a shallow copy.

Returns:
taskDict : dict

Dictionary containing full task name: task object for the top-level task and all subtasks, sub-subtasks, etc.

getVisitSystem() → Tuple[int, str]

Return identifiers for the ‘visit_system’ dimension this algorithm implements.

Returns:
id : int

Integer ID for the visit system (given an instrument).

name : str

Unique string identifier for the visit system (given an instrument).

group(exposures: List[lsst.daf.butler.core.dimensions._records.DimensionRecord]) → Iterable[lsst.obs.base.defineVisits.VisitDefinitionData]

Group the given exposures into visits.

Parameters:
exposures : list [ DimensionRecord ]

DimensionRecords (for the ‘exposure’ dimension) describing the exposures to group.

Returns:
visits : Iterable [ VisitDefinitionData ]

Structs identifying the visits and the exposures associated with them. This may be an iterator or a container.

classmethod makeField(doc)

Make a lsst.pex.config.ConfigurableField for this task.

Parameters:
doc : str

Help text for the field.

Returns:
configurableField : lsst.pex.config.ConfigurableField

A ConfigurableField for this task.

Examples

Provides a convenient way to specify this task is a subtask of another task.

Here is an example of use:

class OtherTaskConfig(lsst.pex.config.Config):
    aSubtask = ATaskClass.makeField("brief description of task")
makeSubtask(name, **keyArgs)

Create a subtask as a new instance as the name attribute of this task.

Parameters:
name : str

Brief name of the subtask.

keyArgs

Extra keyword arguments used to construct the task. The following arguments are automatically provided and cannot be overridden:

  • “config”.
  • “parentTask”.

Notes

The subtask must be defined by Task.config.name, an instance of ConfigurableField or RegistryField.

timer(name, logLevel=10)

Context manager to log performance data for an arbitrary block of code.

Parameters:
name : str

Name of code being timed; data will be logged using item name: Start and End.

logLevel

A logging level constant.

Examples

with self.timer("someCodeToTime"):
    pass  # code to time
