WCSLIB is a C library, supplied with a full set of Fortran wrappers, that
implements the "World Coordinate System" (WCS) standard in FITS (Flexible
Image Transport System).
The FITS data format is widely used within the international astronomical
community, from the radio to gamma-ray regimes, for data interchange and
archive, and also increasingly as an online format.
