Projects / skyviewer


skyviewer is an OpenGL-based program to display HEALPix-based skymaps, saved in FITS format files. The loaded skymaps can be viewed either on a 3D sphere or as a Mollweide projection. In either case, realtime panning and zooming are supported, along with rotations for the 3D sphere view, assuming you have a strong enough graphics card.

      Release Notes: The OpenGL texture now maps one-to-one with the underlying HealPix pixelization scheme. This means each HealPix pixel is now its own color-mapped pixel when displayed. This allows the selection of a pixel and then having the temperature/polarization/Nobs information displayed.
