2d_anisotropic, ...: Anisotropic Cartesian Matching
matcher=2d_anisotropic values*='<x> <y>' params='<error-in-x> <error-in-y>' tuning='<bin-factor>'
x: Cartesian co-ordinate #1
y: Cartesian co-ordinate #2
error-in-x: Axis length of error ellipse in Cartesian co-ordinate #1 direction
error-in-y: Axis length of error ellipse in Cartesian co-ordinate #2 direction
bin-factor: Scaling factor to adjust bin size; larger values mean larger bins
2d_anisotropic matcher compares positions in
2-dimensional Cartesian space using an anisotropic metric.
Rows are considered to match if their (
positions fall within an error ellipse with axis lengths
error-in-y of each other.
This kind of match will typically be used for non-'spatial' spaces,
for instance (magnitude,redshift) space, in which the metrics along
different axes are not related to each other.
Matching in any number of dimensions of Cartesian space using an anisotropic metric can be done by extending this syntax in the obvious way.
