UFig (Ultra Fast Image Generator) is a fast, wide-field image simulation C++ code. It is based on two components:
- models of galaxies, stars and observational conditions, which, while simple, capture the key features necessary for realistic simulations, and
- state-of-the-art computational and implementation optimizations
Ufig is described in An Ultra Fast Image Generator (UFig) for wide-field astronomy. The following demonstrator allows you to create a small image. Change the following input parameters to make a new image. The following demonstrator allows you to create a small image (500 x 400 Pixels). Change the input parameters to make a new image.
The source code and accompanying documentation will be made available on this page. In the meantime, information can be requested to
