Converting Healpix file to traditional fits format

  1. Aug 21, 2009 #1
    Not that this is really an astronomy question per se, but astronomers are most likely to know the answer.

    I have a file containing a sky survey that is in healpix format, and I need to extract the data at certain longitudes and latitudes and at certain frequencies...

    In a traditional fits format i could just read the corresponding rows and columns in the file, but I'm lost as of what to do with a healpix file.

    If anybody with healpix experience could help, i'd appreciate it.

    I'm sorry I do not have the solution to your problem. But I have a similar problem. I wanted to know how to convert a FITS file to a Healpix file
