  • In this article, we investigate the impact of survey strategy on the performance of self-calibration when the goal is to produce accurate photometric catalogs from wide-field imaging surveys. This self-calibration technique utilizes multiple measurements of sources at different focal-plane positions to constrain instruments' large-scale response (flat-field) from survey science data alone. We create an artificial sky of sources and synthetically observe it under four basic survey strategies… CONTINUE READING
