Description : General FITS file browser/editor/plotter with a gui
Fv provides a graphical user interface to data stored in FITS (Flexible
Image Transport System) files. Local files can be created, viewed and
edited, files on the internet can be opened read-only through the http
and ftp protocols. Through the POWplot program, FITS data can be
visualized in a large variety of styles. An interface to the SkyView
online database allows for searching, downloading, and plotting of
images and object lists for a region of the sky.
This is a re-packaging of the "fv" package removed in 2009; see PTS
and http://bugs.debian.org/323469 for the removal bug. Since the name is
too short, the package will be named "heasoft-fv".
A git repository containing the latest upstream sources was created on
Help for packaging would be appreciated.
