This is the command mAddCube that can be run in the OnWorks free hosting provider using one of our multiple free online workstations such as Ubuntu Online, Fedora Online, Windows online emulator or MAC OS online emulator
mAddCube - Co-add the reprojected cubes to form the output mosaic
mAddCube [-p imgdir] [-n(o-areas)] [-a mean|median|count] [-e(xact-size)] [-d level] [-s
statusfile] images.tbl template.hdr out.fits
Coadd the reprojected cubes in an input list to form an output mosaic with FITS header
keywords specified in a header file. Creates two output files, one containing the coadded
pixel values for each cube plane, and the other containing coadded pixel area values. The
pixel area values can be used as a weighting function if the output cube values are
themselves to be coadded with other projected cubes, and may also be used in validating
the fidelity of the output pixel values.
Specifies path to directory containing reprojected images. If the -p switch is not
included, mAddCube will look for the input images in the current working directory.
-n Co-addition ignores weighting by pixel areas and performs coaddition based only on
pixel postions. Will not output an area image for the output image.
Select type of averaging to be done on accumulated pixel values (either mean or
median). To generate a map showing counts of how many times each pixel was
overlapped by the input images, use count.
-e Enables exact size mode. The output image will match the header template exactly,
instead of shrinking the output to fit the data.
Turns on debugging to the specified level (1-3).
mAddCube output and errors will be written to statusfile instead of stdout.
ASCII table (generated by mImgtbl) containing metadata for all images to be
coadded. For cubes, mImgtbl needs to be run with the -C option which picks up the
third dimension parameters (and fourth if they exist).
FITS header template to be used in generation of output FITS cube.
Name of output FITS image.
If successful, mAddCube creates a FITS datacube file out.fits that is a coadd of all the
FITS cubes in the table images.tbl, according to the header template given. A
corresponding out_area.fits is also created.

The following example runs mAddCube on 4 FITS images, generating the output file
mosaic.fits. Related files are images.tbl and template.hdr.
$ mAddCube -p proj images.tbl template.hdr output/mosaic.fits
