Fields section, enter a comma-separated list of field names, or select from the
drop-down list below. This is a mandatory field; at least one field name will need to be selected
here. Field names are not case-sensitive. Note, field names listed here are dependent on the
selected data source.
Select an appropriate Output option. The default is the 'Webpage' option, which will
display in the panel below. The ASCII option will return identical data in plain text
format, which can then be saved as a text file for offline analysis, or input directly into
TopCat. The 'PNG figure' option will produce a valid input ONLY if two numeric fields have
been selected; for example, 'time, bpflux'.
Under Time Format, select output format for: time (burst), and tstart & tstop
(observations), as MJD or calendar. Both options can be selected simultaneously.
