Bug#793461: astrometry.net -- Astrometry plate solver
Owner: Ole Streicher <firstname.lastname@example.org>
* Package name : astrometry.net
Version : 0.56
Upstream Author : David W. Hogg, Dustin Lang
* URL : http://www.astrometry.net/
* License : GPL
Programming Lang: C
Description : Astrometry plate solver
The astrometry engine will take any image and return the astrometry
world coordinate system (WCS), a standards-based description of the
transformation between image coordinates and sky coordinates.
This package already exists in Ubuntu ; however it needs some substantial
polishing before it can enter Debian. The Ubuntu package authors have no own
interest in packaging, therefore I take this over. Discussion with upstream
is just started in their google forum .
The package will be maintained within the Debian Astronomy Team.
