POW Contours and Regions

POW can create contour maps of images and read/write/create standard SAO regions files.


The image below shows a set of contours overlain on top of an image. The blue contours were made from a separate radio map image and then moved to this graph containing an optical image of the same object. The dialog box shows the options available for creating contours.
