    • Abstract

       

      The Indian SWAN (Sky Watch Array Network) is a radio in­terferometric array presently located at Gauribidanur, near Bengaluru and operated by the Raman Research Institute. The primary motive behind the SWAN initiative is to pro­vide much-needed exposure to research in radio astronomy to undergraduates interested in this field. At the same time, the SWAN is expected to increase Indian observing capabil­ities at low radio frequencies significantly. This article in­troduces imaging in radio astronomy and the corresponding data analysis techniques I learned while being associated with the SWAN project.
