HEALPix representation of spherical data - Python data
HEALPix is an acronym for Hierarchical Equal Area isoLatitude Pixelization of a sphere. As suggested in the name, this pixelization produces a subdivision of a spherical surface in which each pixel covers the same surface area as every other pixel. It is commonly used to store all-sky astronomical images, most famously maps of the cosmic microwave background.
This package provides platform-independent data and test files for the Python wrapper around the C++ implementation of HEALPix.
