healpy 1.10.3

Healpy provides a python package to manipulate HEALPix maps. It is based on the standard numeric and visualisation tools for Python, Numpy and matplotlib.

HEALPix is an acronym for Hierarchical Equal Area isoLatitude Pixelation of a sphere. As suggested in the name, this pixelation produces a subdivision of a spherical surface in which each pixel covers the same surface area as every other pixel.

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

At present there are no previous versions of this application on the BlueBEAR service.
