How to convert sky map projections?¶

The following code illustrates how to convert a map in HealPix projection into a map in cartesian projection. Map conversion is performed using the += operator that adds the bilinearly interpolated intensity values from one map to another. The example code applies to any kind of map projections.

Python:

>>> import gammalib
>>> healpix = gammalib.GSkyMap("healpix.fits")
>>> map = gammalib.GSkyMap("CAR","GAL",0.0,0.0,0.5,0.5,100,100)
>>> map += healpix
>>> map.save("carmap.fits")


C++:

#include "GammaLib.hpp"
GSkyMap healpix("healpix.fits");
GSkyMap map("CAR","GAL",0.0,0.0,0.5,0.5,100,100);
map += healpix;
map.save("carmap.fits");
