3D visualization of compact sources

The 3D visualization can be performed by clicking on the Select button of the Main Window (see Fig. 4) and then typing the region bounds (in degrees) of the area of interest.

The 3D view is interactive and the camera position can be moved with mouse operations. The color palette can be mapped to a pre-defined field (e.g. temperature) in the Lut box in the top panel. The scale and range values can also be changed.

The shape and the scaling factor of each source can be modified in the Glyph panel. The points are scaled based on the selected field (e.g. mass). The maximum number of glyphs visualized is set in the Settings (Fig. 3).
