# 1. Visualization Tutorial ¶

We've created an eleanor.Visualization() class to help you understand what is going on with hyour light curves. If you have any additional tools you think would be useful in this class, please submit a pull request!

## 1.1 Setting up the class¶

Initializing the eleanor.visualization() class is very simple! Once you have the light curve you are interested in, created with the eleanor.TargetData() class, you pass this into the visualization class! We'll run through an example with WASP-100.

## 1.2 Overplotting your Aperture ¶

We provide a very simple function that overplots the aperture you use on the target pixel file. You can also pass in your own aperture and change the color/linewidth of the plotted contour.

Here's an example of changing the default aperture contour color and linewidth and also passing in a new aperture to plot:

## 1.3 Pixel-By-Pixel Light Curves ¶

Another useful tool is what we call a pixel-by-pixel light curve. It's exactly what it sounds like: we plot the light curve for a single pixel across the sector. The default light curve that is plotted is the "corrected flux" for each pixel. You can simply call:

Or you can specify which rows/columns you want to focus in on within the target pixel file:

Or you can plot the raw flux light curve per each pixel (yay Earthshine!):
