rHEALPix is a projection based on the HEALPix projection. The implementation of rHEALPix uses the HEALPix projection. The rHEALPix combines the peaks of the HEALPix into a square. The square’s position can be translated and rotated across the x-axis which is a novel approach for the rHEALPix projection. The initial intention of using rHEALPix in the Spatial Computation Engine Science Collaboration Environment (SCENZGrid).
To run a rHEALPix projection on a WGS84 ellipsoidal model, use the following command:
proj +proj=rhealpix -f '%.2f' +ellps=WGS84 +south_square=0 +north_square=2 -E << EOF > 55 12 > EOF 55 12 6115727.86 1553840.13
