Python ctypes wrapper around the SOFA astronomical library

Project description

pysofa is a Python module for accessing International Astronomical Union’s SOFA library from python. SOFA (Standards of Fundamental Astronomy) is a set of algorithms and procedures that implement standard models used in fundamental astronomy.

pysofa is not a port of SOFA routines but a wrapper around the SOFA_C library. Thus, no calculations are made into the pysofa software, they are all delegated to the underlying SOFA_C library.

pysofa is neither distributed, supported nor endorsed by the International Astronomical Union. In addition to pysofa’s license, any use of this module should comply with SOFA’s license and terms of use. Especially, but not exclusively, any published work or commercial products which includes results achieved by using pysofa shall acknowledge that the SOFA software was used in obtaining those results.
