FITS Software Library Package

FITS Software Library Package

Donald Gudehus                            

The Flexible Image Transport System (FITS) Software Library package for Linux, and Mac OS X consists of a collection of routines to carry out various useful functions associated with FITS image files. Besides the source code for the library, a demonstration program, "testfits", which illustrates the library's capabilities and shows how to code the subroutines into your own customized applications, is included. The source code for subroutines from the MIIPS Plot Package and subroutines to display images on Enhanced SAOimage are included as well.

The latest version of the FITS software package was uploaded on September 23, 2013

The operations in the demonstration program which can be carried out on one or more FITS files are:

  • Download/View a pdf version of the 2009 AAS Meeting paper "A FITS Library Package"
