Subarray Description

The SubarrayDescription class holds info about the list of telescopes in an array or subarray and the position on the ground of each. Internally these are stored as dicts by tel_id.

You can get a quick look at an array with the and SubarrayDescription.peek() methods

You can also convert them to astropy.table.Table objects using SubarrayDescription.to_table(), which can then be saved to disk or manipulated.
