AITOFF

AITOFF

Name


      AITOFF

Purpose


      Convert longitude, latitude to X,Y using an AITOFF projection.

Explanation


      This procedure can be used to create an all-sky map in Galactic
      coordinates with an equal-area Aitoff projection. Output map
      coordinates are zero longitude centered.

Calling Sequence


      AITOFF, L, B, X, Y

Inputs


      L - longitude - scalar or vector, in degrees
      B - latitude - same number of elements as L, in degrees

Outputs


      X - X coordinate, same number of elements as L. X is normalized to
              be between -180 and 180
      Y - Y coordinate, same number of elements as L. Y is normalized to
              be between -90 and 90.

Notes


      See AIPS memo No. 46, page 4, for details of the algorithm. This
      version of AITOFF assumes the projection is centered at b=0 degrees.
