pywwt Documentation

pywwt is a Python interface for the Microsoft World Wide Telescope (WWT) Windows client, using the Layer Control API (LCAPI). The LCAPI provides an interface to WWT’s Layer Manager by sending data and information in the form of strings over HTTP. pywwt simply provides a Python interface to make these calls, enabling the control of WWT from scripts or an IPython notebook. Most importantly, it enables the passing of data created within a Python environment to WWT.
