Multi-Order Coverage map module for Python

Project description

Introduction

PyMOC is a module for manipulating Multi-Order Coverage (MOC) maps. It includes support for reading and writing the three encodings mentioned in the IVOA recommendation: FITS, JSON and ASCII.

PyMOC also includes a utility program pymoctool to allow MOC files to be manipulated from the command line.

Installation

The module can be installed using the setup.py script:

python setup.py install

Unit Tests

Prior to installation, the unit tests can be run using:

PYTHONPATH=lib python3 -m unittest

or:

PYTHONPATH=lib python2 -m unittest discover

The routines included in the doctests should also be covered by the unit tests. However to ensure the documentation is correct, they can be checked with:

sphinx-build -b doctest doc doc/_build/doctest

Requirements

For reading and writing data in FITS format, the astropy library is required.

Healpy is needed for some of the utility functions such as plot_moc and catalog_to_moc.
