ScanAmorphos Plug-in

The purpose of the scanamorphos plug-in is to read data from the scanamorphos program. Output from this program is not directly readable in HIPE, due to omissions in the WCS information. This plug-in provides a task called importScanAmorphos, which loads the data, fixes the WCS and produces a SimpleImage.
