Healpix Introduction. Any examples available?

  1. Jun 30, 2011 #1

    I have a project that involves the use of Healpix. I am familiar with IDL, so I would like to use HEALpix through IDL routines. My problem is that I cannot find a starting point. I have data from both Galex and IRAS. I got the IRAS data from http://lambda.gsfc.nasa.gov (Lambda data project), where they have 1-d fits files that contains all the info needed to make an IR skymap.

    Any idea on where I can find examples like this? And also examples on coadding images to create skymaps?

    Thanx a lot in advance
