Detailed Description

static SphericalRegionP SphericalRegionP::loadFromJson ( QIODevice *  in)

The type of the region is automatically recognized from the input format. The currently recognized format are:

  • Contour list:
    [[contour1], [contour2],[...]]
    This format consists of a list of contours. Contours defined in counterclockwise direction (CW) are added to the final region while CCW contours are subtracted (they can be used to form complex polygons even with holes). Each contour can have different format:
    • [[ra,dec], [ra,dec], [ra,dec], [ra,dec]]
      A list of points connected by great circles with the last point connected to the first one. Each point is defined by its ra,dec coordinates in degrees.
    • ["CAP", [raCenter,decCenter], ap]
      A spherical cap centered on raCenter/decCenter with aperture radius ap in degrees. For example:
      ["CAP", [0.,-90.], 90]
      define the region covering the entire southern hemisphere.
    • ["PATH", [startRa,startDec], [[prim1],[prim2],[prim3],...]]
      A path is a contour starting a startRa/startDec and defined by a list of primitives. Each primitive can be either a great circle or a small circle. Great circles are defined by the point to link to: ["greatCircleTo", [ra,dec]]. Small circles are defined by a rotation axis and a rotation angle: ["smallCircle",[0,90],-88]. A full example is:
      This defines a box of 82.5x10 degrees following latitude and longitude lines.
  • Polygon vertex list with associated texture coordinates:
    "worldCoords": [[[ra,dec],[ra,dec],[ra,dec],[ra,dec]], [[ra,dec],[ra,dec],[ra,dec]],[...]],
    "textureCoords": [[[u,v],[u,v],[u,v],[u,v]], [[u,v],[u,v],[u,v]], [...]]
    The format is used to describe textured polygons. The worldCoords part is similar to the one described above. The textureCoords part is the addition of a list of texture coordinates in the u,v texture space (between 0 and 1). There must be one texture coordinate for each vertex.
