Astropy Regions

Regions is an in-development coordinated package of Astropy for region handling.

To get an overview of available features, see Getting Started.

The eventual goal is to merge this package into the Astropy core package.


This regions package is in an early stage of development. It is neither feature complete nor API stable. That said, please have a look and try to use it for your applications. Feedback and contributions are welcome!
