Please looks this over and comment directly to Steve when you
get a chance (we will select "targeted" reviewers also). Deadline
is 22 Jan.
"ALMA Observing Tool: Concept and Prototype" by Scott and Bridger has been posted for comment at:
All comments on this document are welcome - and all comments will receive
a written response. Since this document will be revised before final review,
it is OK if you only have time to make "big picture" comments for this revision.
Note that the observing tool will be the major software point of contact
between observers and ALMA, so it is particularly important that we get
comments from potential users of ALMA.
Please send your comments directly to Steve Scott (email@example.com) by February 8. It is a convenience if your comments are in the form:
p.16 An interesting comment about something on page 16.
Table of Contents
1. General Calibration Issues (Holdaway & Wootten) (alternative as HTML ) 2001-02-06
This chapter will be revised in the light of the June PDR last year. Mark has proposed a plan of action.
2. Calibration Hardware (Payne, Vaccari et al.) (alternative HTML ) 2001-02-02
This needs input from IRAM on the semi-transparent vane, in my opinion. It should have something about the optical pointing telescopes also. It should also include WLM material from Cambridge, IMHO. However, I think it is inevitable that some items mentioned in 3.1 won't be addressed yet in 3.2--FTS for instance.
13 Data Analysis: Imaging Requirements (Holdaway 2000-04-24 & Wootten)
This chapter should make use of the Science Software Requirements Documents. Steve has looked this over.
14 Site Characterization (PDF) also available as 2001-08-01 HTML format (Radford)
I think Simon has revised this.
Array Configuration (Min Yun)
15 NB: Significant revision expected after Feb 2001 PDR and Jan 2002 CDR. Text is available.
Notes of the 18 Dec telecon may be found here.

Woody requested reviewers be issued a scorecard. Maybe like this:

ASAC--19-21 March in Japan?
ALMA Week--23-27 April Granada Spain,
ACC--18-20 April Venice Italy
