Description

After a brief presentation of HEALPix, I will discuss the specificities of the CDS implementation.
This implementation has been natively coded in both Java and Rust. Wrappers make the Rust library accessible in Javascript/WebAssembly and Python.
Particular emphasis will be placed on the exact solution of cone/polygon coverage queries and on MOCs in which each cell contains a boolean flag.
