       pymoctool - manipulate Multi-Order Coverage maps


       pymoctool [INPUT] [COMMAND [FILE]] [--output OUTPUT]


       pymoctool  can  be  used  to  manupulate  Multi-Order Coverage (MOC) tools for the Virtual
       Observatory.  It is a command-line tool and can handle files encoded  as  FITS,  JSON,  or
       ASCII.   The  tool  maintains  builds  up  a  MOC  stack  using  union,  intersection  and
       subtraction, with the pipeline processed in the order it is passed on the command-line.

       Internally pymoctool uses and exposes the the PyMOC  library  found  in  the  python-pymoc
       Debian package.


       --catalog coords.txt [order NN] [radius NN]
              Render  a  circles  using the flood-fill method on top of the MOC stack.  The input
              text file should be whitespace records containing either RA+Dec  pairs  or  Lat+Lon

       --help, -h
              Show top-level help

       --id   Set new identifier for MOC stack

       --info, -i
              Display information about the MOC stack

              Intersect another MOC with the existing MOC stack

       --name Set new name for the MOC stack

       --normalize 0-29
              Set the maximum depth order of a MOC in the range 0-29

       --output, -o
              Output filename MOC

       --plot Project and render the MOC as a flattened all-sky map

              Subtract the a MOC from the existing MOC stack

              Show the backend PyMOC library version number

       Detailed help for individuals commands can be found with pymoctool --help COMMAND


       pymoctool foo.fits --output foo.json bar.txt --output both.fits
              Load  foo.fits  then  convert and the save a copy to foo.json perform a union merge
              with a text-format MOC called bar.txt and save the result both.fits
