`astropy.wcs` contains utilities for managing World Coordinate System
(WCS) transformations in FITS files. These transformations map the
pixel locations in an image to their real-world units, such as their
position on the sky sphere.
It is at its base a wrapper around Mark Calabretta's `wcslib`_, but
also adds support for the Simple Imaging Polynomial (`SIP`_)
convention and table lookup distortions as defined in WCS `Paper IV`_.
Each of these transformations can be used independently or together in
a standard pipeline.
