This returns a human-readable web page with a clickable, zoomable map of the MWA at the current time, showing tile flags/errors and known dipole faults from the most recent observation. Click on the '+' and '-' buttons at the ends of the scale bar (top left) to zoom in an out, or click on any tile to re-centre the map on that tile. 

Optional parameters are:

  • obs_id or obsid: Use the tile configuration, flags, and pointing/dipole faults for the given observation, instead of the most recent one.
  • tile_id or tileid: Center the map on this tile.
  • radius: map radius (actually half the map width/height) in metres.
  • imsize: Image size, in pixels.

Tileimage web service


This returns a bare PNG image file, for embedding in another web page. The image includes the scale bar, but is not clickable/zoomable (that functionality is in the HTML returned by the 'tilemap' service).

Optional parameters are the same as the above Tilemap web service.
