The MultiDrizzle Handbook
The information contained in this Handbook represents the cumulative experience and contributions of many members of the STScI community, including the WFPC2, WFC3, ACS, NICMOS and STIS instrument groups, the Observatory Support Group and the Science Software Branch. The drizzle code, which underlies all the analysis routines described here, was originally developed by Richard Hook and Andy Fruchter. Initial implementation of drizzle and its supporting CL scripts in IRAF/STSDAS was coordinated with the Software Support Group at STScI, in particular Ivo Busko and J.-C. Hsu.
Since then numerous people have worked on this project to create what is now the MultiDrizzle code, including but not limited to, Anton Koekemoer, Warren Hack, Andy Fruchter, Richard Hook, Nadezhda Dencheva, Perry Greenfield, Michael Droetboom and Chris Hanley.
This version of the MultiDrizzle Handbook was edited by Andy Fruchter, Megan Sosey and Warren Hack, with contributions from many others at STScI, in particular Linda Dressel, Anton Koekemoer, Jennifer Mack, Max Mutchler and Nor Pirzkal and with the technical assistance of Susan Rose, Michael Droetboom.
We at the Institute also thank the many users of MultiDrizzle whose feedback has been invaluable in improving the software.
