Class HealPixImage

All Implemented Interfaces:, Component

public class HealPixImage
extends Image
This class defines an image gotten by reading a HEALPix image where the pixels are in the nested pixel order. This assumes the FITS structures found in the WMAP data but could be adapted to other orders as needed. There are several HEALPix formats supported: A single HEALPix intensity array in the primary HDU HEALPix data in the first extension HDU as a binary table with each row in the table corresponding to a single pixel. This format can support multiple HEALPix Stokes parameter values per pixel, in particular I, Q and U and be read from the file and the derived quantities PI, PI/I, and PA can be returned if the I,Q,U are present. A single HEALPix intensity array stored in the first extension with R rows, where each row in the table has an array of N values representing RxN pixels. A HEALPix file which has been split into multiple tiles. These tiles will be read as needed.

    • getWidth

      public int getWidth()
      Get the width of the image in pixels

    • getHeight

      public int getHeight()
      Get the height of the image in pixels

    • getDepth

      public int getDepth()
      Only a scalar image. Note that if we are returning a PA image then this does not transform simply when we change coordinates. This is really a vector.

    • getData

      public double getData​(long ipix)
      Get a single element of data

    • getDataArray

      public double[] getDataArray()
      Probably should happen, but just in case we support the get array function.

    • setData

      public void setData​(long npix, double val)
      Support changing the data! Probably won't use this...
