Images are stored as matlab structures called 'map'. The structure has length 2, one for each frequency, and each frequency has 'T', 'Q' and 'U' maps, corresponding to Stokes I, Q and U parameters in each map pixel. A corresponding structure 'm' contains the axes information; m.x_tic gives the RA coordinates, m.y_tic gives the dec coordinates.

To look at the 150 GHz T map, in matlab do:
>> imagesc(m.x_tic,m.y_tic,map(2).T).

For the 100 GHz U map, do:
>> imagesc(m.x_tic,m.y_tic,map(1).U).
