[ascl:2202.011] RFEP: Residual Feature Extraction Pipeline

Residual Feature Extraction Pipeline carries out feature extraction of residual substructure within the residual images produced by popular galaxy structural-fitting routines such as GALFIT (ascl:1104.010) and GIM2D (ascl:1004.001). It extracts faint low surface brightness features by isolating flux-wise and area-wise significant contiguous pixels regions by rigorous masking routine. The code accepts the image cubes (original image, model image, residual image) and generates several data products, such as an image with extracted features, a source extraction based segmentation map, and the background sky mask and the residual extraction mask. It uses a Monte Carlo approach-based area threshold above which the extracted features are identified. The pipeline also creates a catalog entry indicating the surface brightness and its error.
