FITS user guide

There’s now a user guide online for Harvard University Libraries’ File Information Tool Set (FITS). FITS extracts technical metadata using serveral different tools, including JHOVE, Exiftool, NLNZ Metadata Extractor, DROID, FFIdent, and File Utility.

Does anyone reading this know if FFIdent is still alive somewhere on the Web? A web search for it turns up nothing useful, and the number 1 hit is the FITS site itself.

    It seems a shame to use the same acronym for a file format information tool as for a specific file format, see, described as “the most commonly used digital file format in astronomy”!
