gen_SimObs_from_sedgrid(sedgrid, sedgrid_noisemodel, nsim=100, compl_filter='F475W', ranseed=None, vega_fname=None, weight_to_use='weight', age_prior_model=None, mass_prior_model=None)¶
Generate simulated observations using the physics and observation grids. The priors are sampled as they give the ensemble model for the stellar and dust distributions (IMF, Av distribution etc.). The physics model gives the SEDs based on the priors. The observation model gives the noise, bias, and completeness all of which are used in simulating the observations.
Currently written to only work for the toothpick noisemodel.

noise model data
number of observations to simulate
Filter to use for completeness (required for toothpick model). Set to max to use the max value in all filters.
used to set the seed to make the results reproducable, useful for testing
filename for the vega info, useful for testing
- weight_to_usestring (default=’weight’)
Set to either ‘weight’ (prior+grid), ‘prior_weight’, or ‘grid_weight’ to choose the weighting for SED selection.
