Abstract: The WCSTools package, open-source software since 1996, is best known for its ability to set and utilize the world coordinate systems of image data and to search catalogs, but it contains other tasks to observe and manipulate the data and metadata in FITS files. Here are some of them, plus some upcoming additions to the package, including implementations of arbitrary-length keywords in FITS headers and access to additional catalogs.
