PyAST provides wrappers for the starlink AST library. AST provides a comprehensive range of facilities for attaching world co-ordinate systems to astronomical data, for retrieving and interpreting that information in a variety of formats, including FITS-WCS, and for generating graphical output based on it (annotated coordinate grids, etc). AST provides the WCS facilities for such popular tools as DS9, Gaia and Splat. More information about AST is available at www.starlink.ac.uk/ast.
