bit manipulation class derived from Healpix fortran90 program.
Aggregates a vector and double array which are the results of a pixel center calculation.
contains methods translated from HEALPix Fortran90 with increased map resolution in comparison to original Fortran code.
handles exceptions from this package
The package contains conversion of basic utilities used for pixel manipulation
in the HEALPix from FORTRAN90 to Java. The package consists of one class PixTools and supporting methods and the vecmath.jar library. The package permits to create HEALPix maps, query existing maps providing a list of neighboring pixels selected by various requarements.
All methods of the class are thread safe. This class can be used as a singleton,
the singleton instance being available from the
For compatibility with previous versions however it is possible to
construct new instances using the default constructor.
