cartview


This IDL facility provides a means to visualise a cartesian projection (where the longitude and latitude are treated as the cartesian abscissa and ordinate) of HEALPix and COBE Quad-Cube maps in an IDL environment. It also offers the possibility to generate GIF, JPEG, PDF, PNG and Postscript color-coded images of the projected map. The projected (but not color-coded) data can also be output in FITS files and IDL arrays.

DESCRIPTION



cartview reads in a HEALPix sky map in FITS format and generates a cartesian projection of it, that can be visualized on the screen or exported in a GIF, JPEG, PNG, PDF or Postscript file. cartview allows the selection of the coordinate system, map size, color table, color bar inclusion, linear, log, hybrid or histogram equalised color scaling, maximum and minimum range for the plot, plot-title etc. It also allows the representation of the polarization field.

EXAMPLE:

map = findgen(48)

triangle= create_struct('coord','G','ra',[0,80,0],'dec',[40,45,65])
cartview,map,/online,res=45,graticule=[45,30],rot=[10,20,30],pysize=250,$
$\quad$ title='Cartesian cylindrical (full sky)',subtitle='cartview', $
$\quad$ outline=triangle
makes a cartesian cylindrical projection of map (see Figure 1a on page [*]) after an arbitrary rotation, with a graticule grid (with a 45o step in longitude and 30o in latitude) and an arbitrary triangular outline
