#1

Given the rather large discussion thread about the need for an astro/space topic, I figured I might as well get the ball rolling.

I have recently put a lot of effort into revamping and modernizing my LibHealpix.jl package. This is a wrapper of libchealpix and libhealpix_cxx for working with Healpix maps including:

  • spherical harmonic transforms
  • Mollweide projection
  • FITS I/O

This wrapper has not quite reached feature parity with healpy, but I’ve been using it in my own research for some time now. And we can get some pretty pictures:
