I'd like to compare the DECaLS footprint to various other survey footprints on a sky map. Is there existing code to do this?

Thanks.

Hi, not currently, no. But, depending on what exactly you want to plot (for instance brick centers, corners, number of exposures, etc.), take a look at for instance these notebooks that use pylab or healpy for plotting skymaps:

Or if you have a scatter cloud, scipy.spatial.ConvexHull can compute a polygon to plot around the cloud.

I see, thanks. So the coordinates for the polygons themselves are not given anywhere?
