I just registered and have yet to learn how to use WebRun. But, there is one question I would like to ask before I start the learning process. Does the WebRun output only give results for the Sun's location in the Milky Way, or can that be specified in the input file? I would like to be able to move the observer's location to an arbitrary position in the Milky Way.

Thanks,

Guillermo

For cosmic rays,the complete spectrum of every species is output at every place on the GALPROP 2D or 3D grid, if that is required (set parameter to full output).
Even if full output is not specified, it is output for all places with z=0.

For gamma rays and synchrotron the WebRun version skymaps are only for the Sun's position. Enhancements for more general positions are in the works.

However the gamma-ray and synchrotron emissivities are output for every position so making skymaps is not too difficult for any viewing position.

For an example of interpolation of the CR spectrum to the location of the Sun, take a look at the tool Plot Galprop.
It can be downloaded from this page:
http://galprop.stanford.edu/resources.php?option=routines
and the direct link to the script is:
