SkyViewer is an OpenGL-based program written by Nicholas Phillips to display HEALPix-based sky maps from FITS format files.

The program will display sky maps on a 3D sphere or a 2D Mollweide projection. Real time panning and zooming are supported, as are rotations of the 3D sphere (if you have a fast graphics card).

The program was developed and tested in a Red Hat Linux environment, but it should also build under Windows and Max OSX.

Here are some key features of "SkyViewer":

3D sphere or 2D Mollweide display
View Temperature, Polarization or Nobs fields
Real time rotation, zooming, and panning
Retrieve pixel information from the display
Adjustable mapping from pixel value to color
Save screen shots to image file
Pixel texture aligns with HEALPix pixel boundaries
Contextual help
OS agnostic



Requirements:

Qt, >= v3.1.2
CFITSIO, A FITS File Subroutine Library, >= v2.440
HEALPix, >= v1.20
libQGLViewer, >= v1.3.8
