VOConvert (ConVOT)

VOConvert or ConVOT is a small java script which does file format conversion from fits to ascii or the other way around. These tools might be useful for statisticians who want to convert astronomers’ data format called fits into ascii quickly for a statistical analysis. Additionally, VOConvert creates an interim output for VOStat, designed for statistical data analysis from Virtual Observatory. The softwares and the list of Virtual Observatories around the world can be found at Virtual Observatory India.
