Projection of Healpix maps onto a planar grid

HealPixProjection is a project to allow easy and efficient projection of healpix maps onto planar grids. It can be used as a standalone program cutsky

$ cutsky 0.0 0.0 --mapfilenames HFI_SkyMap_857_2048_R2.00_full.fits

or as a python module

from hpproj import cutsky
result = cutsky([0.0, 0.0], maps={'Planck 857':
                                  {'filename': 'HFI_SkyMap_857_2048_R2.00_full.fits'}
                                  } )


  • Galactic and equatorial system supported
  • All projection system from wcslib
  • Project several healpix maps at once, efficiently !
  • Output in fits, png or votable for the central point source photometry


Install hpproj using pip :
