id: asdf://asdf-format.org/core/manifests/core-1.1.0 extension_uri: asdf://asdf-format.org/core/extensions/core-1.1.0 title: Core extension 1.1.0 description: Tags for ASDF core objects. asdf_standard_requirement: 1.1.0 tags: - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/core/asdf-1.0.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/core/asdf-1.0.0 title: Top-level schema for every ASDF file. description: This schema contains the top-level attributes for every ASDF file. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/core/column-1.0.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/core/column-1.0.0 title: A column in a table. description: |- Each column contains a name and an array of data, and an optional description and unit. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/core/complex-1.0.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/core/complex-1.0.0 title: Complex number value. description: |- Represents a complex number matching the following EBNF grammar ``` dot = "." plus-or-minus = "+" | "-" digit = "0" | "1" | "2" | "3" | "4" | "5" | "6" | "7" | "8" | "9" sign = "" | plus-or-minus suffix = "J" | "j" | "I" | "i" inf = "inf" | "INF" nan = "nan" | "NAN" number = digits | dot digits | digits dot digits sci-suffix = "e" | "E" scientific = number sci-suffix sign digits real = sign number | sign scientific imag = number suffix | scientific suffix complex = real | sign imag | real plus-or-minus imag ``` Though `J`, `j`, `I` and `i` must be supported on reading, it is recommended to use `i` on writing. For historical reasons, it is necessary to accept as valid complex numbers that are surrounded by parenthesis. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/core/constant-1.0.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/core/constant-1.0.0 title: Specify that a value is a constant. description: Used as a utility to indicate that value is a literal constant. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/core/history_entry-1.0.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/core/history_entry-1.0.0 title: An entry in the file history. description: |- A record of an operation that has been performed upon a file. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/core/ndarray-1.0.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/core/ndarray-1.0.0 title: An *n*-dimensional array. description: |- There are two ways to store the data in an ndarray. - Inline in the tree: This is recommended only for small arrays. In this case, the entire ``ndarray`` tag may be a nested list, in which case the type of the array is inferred from the content. (See the rules for type inference in the ``inline-data`` definition below.) The inline data may also be given in the ``data`` property, in which case it is possible to explicitly specify the ``datatype`` and other properties. - External to the tree: The data comes from a [block](ref:block) within the same ASDF file or an external ASDF file referenced by a URI. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/core/software-1.0.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/core/software-1.0.0 title: Describes a software package. description: General-purpose description of a software package. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/core/table-1.0.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/core/table-1.0.0 title: A table. description: |- A table is represented as a list of columns, where each entry is a [column](ref:core/column-1.0.0) object, containing the data and some additional information. The data itself may be stored inline as text, or in binary in either row- or column-major order by use of the `strides` property on the individual column arrays. Each column in the table must have the same first (slowest moving) dimension. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/fits/fits-1.0.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/fits/fits-1.0.0 title: A FITS file inside of an ASDF file. description: |- This schema is useful for distributing ASDF files that can automatically be converted to FITS files by specifying the exact content of the resulting FITS file. Not all kinds of data in FITS are directly representable in ASDF. For example, applying an offset and scale to the data using the `BZERO` and `BSCALE` keywords. In these cases, it will not be possible to store the data in the native format from FITS and also be accessible in its proper form in the ASDF file. Only image and binary table extensions are supported. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/time/time-1.1.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/time/time-1.1.0 title: Represents an instance in time. description: |- A "time" is a single instant in time. It may explicitly specify the way time is represented (the "format") and the "scale" which specifies the offset and scaling relation of the unit of time. Specific emphasis is placed on supporting time scales (e.g. UTC, TAI, UT1, TDB) and time representations (e.g. JD, MJD, ISO 8601) that are used in astronomy and required to calculate, e.g., sidereal times and barycentric corrections. Times may be represented as one of the following: - an object, with explicit `value`, and optional `format`, `scale` and `location`. - a string, in which case the format is guessed from across the unambiguous options (`iso`, `byear`, `jyear`, `yday`), and the scale is hardcoded to `UTC`. In either case, a single time tag may be used to represent an n-dimensional array of times, using either an `ndarray` tag or inline as (possibly nested) YAML lists. If YAML lists, the same format must be used for all time values. The precision of the numeric formats should only be assumed to be as good as an IEEE-754 double precision (float64) value. If higher-precision is required, the `iso` or `yday` format should be used. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/unit/defunit-1.0.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/unit/defunit-1.0.0 title: Define a new physical unit. description: |- Defines a new unit. It can be used to either: - Define a new base unit. - Create a new unit name that is a equivalent to a given unit. The new unit must be defined before any unit tags that use it. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/unit/quantity-1.1.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/unit/quantity-1.1.0 title: Represents a Quantity object from astropy description: |- A Quantity object represents a value that has some unit associated with the number. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/unit/unit-1.0.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/unit/unit-1.0.0 title: Physical unit. description: |- This represents a physical unit, in [VOUnit syntax, Version 1.0](http://www.ivoa.net/documents/VOUnits/index.html). Where units are not explicitly tagged, they are assumed to be in VOUnit syntax. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/wcs/celestial_frame-1.1.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/wcs/celestial_frame-1.1.0 title: Represents a celestial frame. description: Represents a celestial frame. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/wcs/composite_frame-1.1.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/wcs/composite_frame-1.1.0 title: Represents a set of frames. description: Represents a set of frames. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/wcs/icrs_coord-1.1.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/wcs/icrs_coord-1.1.0 title: Represents an ICRS coordinate object from astropy description: This object represents the right ascension (RA) and declination of an ICRS coordinate or frame. The astropy ICRS class contains additional fields that may be useful to add here in the future. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/wcs/spectral_frame-1.1.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/wcs/spectral_frame-1.1.0 title: Represents a spectral frame. description: Represents a spectral frame. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/wcs/step-1.1.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/wcs/step-1.1.0 title: Describes a single step of a WCS transform pipeline. description: Describes a single step of a WCS transform pipeline. - tag_uri: tag:stsci.edu:asdf/wcs/wcs-1.0.0 schema_uri: http://stsci.edu/schemas/asdf/wcs/wcs-1.0.0 title: A system for describing generalized world coordinate transformations. description: ASDF WCS is a way of specifying transformations (usually from detector space to world coordinate space and back) by using the transformations in the `transform-schema` module.
