Image simulation with shapelets: code now documented & publicly available!

The shapelets formalism can be used to simulate unique yet realistic astronomical images, containing galaxies of all morphological types. Papers describing the technique include

It has been used in the STEP and FLIP projects to improve weak lensing measurement algorithms, and also to predict the sensitivity of a next-generation space telescope. Examples of deep simulated images are already available, as well as the simage IDL code to generate more. New!
