fitscut is designed to extract cutouts from FITS image format files. FITS, PNG, and JPEG output types are supported.
When multiple input files are specified and the output type is PNG or JPEG the resulting image is an RGB color image.
Information on the FITS file format is available from http://fits.gsfc.nasa.gov/.
In order to build fitscut you will need:
|WCS Subroutine library||ftp://cfa-ftp.harvard.edu/pub/gsc/WCSTools/|
For convenience we provide a version of the CFITSIO Source RPM. You can build a binary RPM using the
rpmbuild --rebuild command. This is
provided as is and with no support.
