Pix2Sky_CylindricalEqualArea

class astropy.modeling.projections.Pix2Sky_CylindricalEqualArea(lam=1, **kwargs)[source] [edit on github]

Bases: astropy.modeling.projections.Pix2SkyProjection, astropy.modeling.projections.Cylindrical

Cylindrical equal area projection - pixel to sky.

Corresponds to the CEA projection in FITS WCS.

\[\begin{split}\phi &= x \\ \theta &= \sin^{-1}\left(\frac{\pi}{180^{\circ}}\lambda y\right)\end{split}\]
Parameters:

lam : float

Radius of the cylinder in spherical radii, λ. Default is 0.
