uFig

Main content

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.
