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 pairs. --help, -h Show top-level help --id Set new identifier for MOC stack --info, -i Display information about the MOC stack --intersection 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 Subtract the a MOC from the existing MOC stack --version 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
