selectionfunctions documentation

selectionfunctions provides a unified interface for the selection functions of several major astronomical surveys. This module is entirely derivative of the excellent dustmaps package by Gregory M. Green. The selectionfunctions package is a product of the Completeness of the Gaia-verse (CoG) collaboration.

To get started, take a look at Installation and Examples. To see a list of all available selection functions, take a look at Available Selection Functions. For a complete reference to the API, see selectionfunctions modules.

If you make use of selectionfunctions in your research, please cite Green (2018):
