Coordinate Conversions "CooC"

Online site 1 (new; under construction)

Online site 2 (old but it should work)

Online site 3 (currently inoperative)

Download Linux version 1.01

Download Windows version 1.01

Download Unix version 1.01

You can convert between any two astronomical coordinate systems with the CooC. Online versions offer a form with which you can easily convert one set of coordinates to another. Downloadable programmes are older and a bit crummy but you can convert any number of coordinates in one go.

Please, let me know if you find any problems with coordinate conversions or get incorrect results. I shall try to fix the problem as soon as possible.
