FITS files test data

For tools see http://www.fileinfo.com/extension/fits

The NASA tool at http://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/software/ftools/fv/ is useful.

  • swp05569slg.fits: IUE image low resolution - note that the second image is the "Quality Flag" images which gives information about the quality (reliability/issues/problems) with individual pixels in the first image

  • orion-16.fits: Simple FITS file - note however that "This image also tests theblank pixel convention. This image contains 144 blank pixels in the centers of the saturated images of the four Trapezium stars". (Blank pixel has value -32768 according to parameter BLANK). Note that there is no World Coordinate System

  • file003.fits: FITS file containing AIPS data. The second component is the "AIPS CC" extension which contains the "AIPS Clean COmponent" which can be used to remove confusing sources which are buried in the sidelobe structure of the phase calibrator

  • file002.fits: FITS ASCII table.Note that the Primary extension is empty and the table is in the "NoName" extension
