The Surface task is proposing an extension of FITS for planetary surfaces and compliance with GIS: describe properly images projected on planetary surfaces (so that they can be plotted accurately from information contained in fits header): GeoFITS.
In addition, interface with GIS is addressed is several ways:

  • fits support in the GDAL conversion library is improved.
  • A fits plugin for QGIS makes it possible to load images in this format
  • fits support in ImageJ is improved
