Abstract : World Coordinate System parsing and calculations

Category : Deprecated   

Homepage : https://trac6.assembla.com/astrolib

NOTE: Superseded by WCS package in Astropy.

pywcs is a set of routines for handling the FITS World Coordinate System (WCS) standard. It is a thin wrapper around the high- and mid-level interfaces of Dr. Mark Calabretta's WCSLIB.

In combination with pyfits, pywcs can be used to parse WCS information from FITS files and to convert between pixel and world coordinates.

For more information, visit the Documentation.

pywcs is part of the Astrolib repository.
