The JWST ETC provides 2-D images, line plots, scalar values, warnings, and FITS downloads for evaluating calculations.

Video Tutorial:  ETC General Overview

The JWST Exposure Time Calculator outputs 2-D images, line plots, and scalar values for all the calculations it performs. Saturation warnings are provided for instances when pixels partially or fully saturate. All ETC output products and some intermediate products can be downloaded as FITS files for additional analysis.
