[AstroPy] WCS on Windows?
Tue Jul 7 18:00:55 CDT 2009
I've got an undergrad student with a Windows laptop, who's just
informed me that she can't get any of the available WCS modules to
compile or install properly on it. Not pywcs, not astWCS from astLib,
nor WCS from Kapteyn. The problems all seem to have to do with the C
compilation parts... I myself gave up Windows long ago and thus doubt
I'll be able to help her sort through the compiler errors in a useful
So my questions now are
1) Has anyone successfully compiled any of the above on Windows, and
if so, how?, and
2) Are there any pure-Python implementations of WCS transformations?
Really just the very basics (xy to ad for tangential projections and
vice versa) are all she needs for the project I want her to work on...
I suppose I should just have her implement the relevant equations
herself, but that feels like a bit too much reinventing the wheel
unless there's no other choice.
Thanks for any advice!
