LOFAR imaging software

The dependencies of imaging software is very complex, we recommend using docker or singularity to run the software. LOFAR imaging with docker


For the dynamic spectrum and imaging postprocess, we use python package lofarSun (lofarSun <>`). We recommend creating a standalone python enviroment for a more isolated and stable runtime.

conda create -n lofarsun python=3.9

Then activate the enviroment:

conda activate lofarsun

There are two ways to install lofarSun package:

  1. From pip, the (relatively) stable version:

python -m pip install lofarSun
  1. From git the (nighty) dev version:

git clone
cd lofar-sun-tools
python install

Also, we can use docker to run lofarSun: lofarsundocker
