query_strip(nside, theta1, theta2, inclusive=False, nest=False, ndarray buff=None)¶
Returns pixels whose centers lie within the colatitude range defined by theta1 and theta2 (if inclusive is False), or which overlap with this region (if inclusive is True). If theta1<theta2, the region between both angles is considered, otherwise the regions 0<theta<theta2 and theta1<theta<pi.
nside : int
The nside of the Healpix map.
theta1 : float
First colatitude (radians)
theta2 : float
Second colatitude (radians)
inclusive ; bool
If False, return the exact set of pixels whose pixels centers lie within the region; if True, return all pixels that overlap with the region.
nest: bool, optional
if True, assume NESTED pixel ordering, otherwise, RING pixel ordering
buff: int array, optional
if provided, this numpy array is used to contain the return values and must be at least long enough to do so
ipix : int, array
The pixels which lie within the given strip.
