[ascl:2204.002] Astroplotlib: Python scripts to handle astronomical images

Astroplotlib builds images with any scale, overlay contours, physical bars, and orientation arrows (N and E axes) automatically. The package contains scripts to overlay pseudo-slits and obtain statistics from apertures, estimate the background sky, and overlay the fitted isophotes and their respective contours on an image. Astroplotlib can work with the output table from the Ellipse task of IRAF and overlay fitted isophotes and their respective contours. It includes a GUI for masking areas in the images by using different polygons, and can also obtain statistical information (e.g., total flux and mean, among others) from the masked areas. There is also a GUI to overlay star catalogs on an image and an option to download them directly from the Vizier server.
