Python Binding of chealpix

Project description

chealpy is the Python binding of chealpix.

chealpix is the C implementation of HealPix.
HealPix linearizes spherical coordinate into integers.

You will need numpy > 1.6.

The installation is just
python install
easy_install chealpy

Refer to HealPix manual for usage.

Two precisions are provided:
chealpy.high :upto nside=1<<29
chealpy.low : upto nside=8192

functions under the namespace chealpy are imported from chealpy.high

MAX_NSIDES is the upper limit of nsides

wrappers are automatically generated Cython code, making use
of NpyIter API.

For a feature-rich Healpix C++ binding, take a look at healpy.
