This page is devoted to WGAS Committee FITS (WFC) issues, although Don Wells maintains the official WFC page.

The Working Group on Astronomical Software (WGAS), a working group under the American Astronomical Society (AAS), has instituted a separate working group to discuss on FITS matters, vote on them, and bring them to the attention of the IAU-FWG. Parallel to our North-American committee the Europeans and Japanese have also organized themselves in a regional FITS committee.

Although we meet annually at the summer AAS, with the annual ADASS meetings and their FITS BOF, the WGAS meetings do not attract the kind of people we expect to contribute. Instead the ADASS meeting is now the place of choice to meet face to face.
