Abstract : Ultraviolet imaging telescope (UVIT), onboard ASTROSAT, consists of two 38-cm telescopes providing three channels for imaging the sky at an angular resolution of 1 to 1.5 arc sec over a field of 28 arc minutes. The Payload Operation Centre (POC) for UVIT is operational at the Indian Institute of Astrophysics. Here we present an overview of the software tools available at the POC website. These tools have been developed to assist the scientific community in planning their observations using the UVIT.
