The MAPGEN program generates maps of gamma ray events
in FITS format files to be plotted by any
FITS reader such as the SKYMAP program.
The gamma ray data is extracted from the Summary Data Base (SMDB)
or the SELECT data base
to user specified time range, energy level, coordinates, energy return codes
and so on.
The data is then binned according to the events arrival directions
in a user selected coordinate system and grid style. Finally, the
program stores the binned data in FITS format files using the
energy levels as a third dimension of the maps.
