  The HEASARC at Goddard Space Flight Center is responsible for archiving a considerable volume of data from many different high energy astrophysics missions, including missions under the auspices of NASA and missions in which NASA has cooperated with and supported other agencies. Under the Office of Guest Investigator Programs (OGIP), the HEASARC FITS Working Group has been organized to formulate recommendations for FITS practice, required for files produced by HEASARC/OGIP but intended for application throughout the high energy astrophysics community.
