Healpy: a Healpix python wrapper
Healpy is a python wrapper of the Healpix package.
Healpy is based on the C++ Healpix library and relies on Numpy (mandatory), matplotlib (for graphical part, optional) and pyfits for FITS I/O. It gives access to:
- Pixel/spherical coordinate transforms :
pix2ang and related functions
- spherical harmonics transforms:
alm2map and higher level functions (
- plotting functions:
- Fits functions :
write_map (through pyfits)
The current version is 0.9.2. For easiness, Healpy is distributed with the Healpix C++ library and Healpix data needed.
