HighLevelWCSWrapper

class astropy.wcs.wcsapi.HighLevelWCSWrapper(low_level_wcs)[source]

Bases: astropy.wcs.wcsapi.HighLevelWCSMixin

Methods Documentation

array_index_to_world(*index_arrays)

Convert array indices to world coordinates (represented by Astropy objects).

If a single high-level object is used to represent the world coordinates (i.e., if len(wcs.world_axis_object_classes) == 1), it is returned as-is (not in a tuple/list), otherwise a tuple of high-level objects is returned. See array_index_to_world_values for pixel indexing and ordering conventions.

pixel_to_world(*pixel_arrays)

Convert pixel coordinates to world coordinates (represented by high-level objects).

If a single high-level object is used to represent the world coordinates (i.e., if len(wcs.world_axis_object_classes) == 1), it is returned as-is (not in a tuple/list), otherwise a tuple of high-level objects is returned. See pixel_to_world_values for pixel indexing and ordering conventions.

world_to_array_index(*world_objects)

Convert world coordinates (represented by Astropy objects) to array indices.

If pixel_n_dim is 1, this method returns a single scalar or array, otherwise a tuple of scalars or arrays is returned. See world_to_array_index_values for pixel indexing and ordering conventions. The indices should be returned as rounded integers.

world_to_pixel(*world_objects)

Convert world coordinates (represented by Astropy objects) to pixel coordinates.

If pixel_n_dim is 1, this method returns a single scalar or array, otherwise a tuple of scalars or arrays is returned. See world_to_pixel_values for pixel indexing and ordering conventions.
