Contour Plots from WWZ/Vstar


I am trying to duplicate the contour plots from Grant Fosters book, Analyzing Light Curves, like figure 11.13 and 11.14 for starters.  Is there a way to do that in Vstar?  Do I have to export the data to a contour plotting routine?  Suggestions?

Hi Gary

Sorry for the delay.

The plots of Figs 11.13 and 11.14 correspond to the WWZ result dialog's Period vs Time vs WWZ contour plot tab. See the T UMi example on page 93 and following of the VStar User Manual.

There are aspects of the WWZ plotting that could be better but you'll find the plots in Foster's book are provided by VStar.

Does that help? If not, please feel free to ask more questions.
