Healpix.jl: an implementation of the Healpix tessellation scheme in Julia

This is the documentation of the Healpix.jl package, an implementation of the Healpix spherical tessellation scheme written entirely in Julia.

This library is a work-in-progress: if you want something with more functionality, have a look at Libhealpix.jl, as it wraps the Healpix C++ library. This package has the main purpose of providing a Julia-only solution, so that it can easily be used on platforms not supported by the Healpix C++ library (e.g., Windows).

This library implements algorithms for converting directions into pixel indices and vice versa. It supports both RING and NESTED schemes, and it employs Julia's powerful type system to avoid mistaking one scheme in place of the other.


The documentation was built using Documenter.jl.
