The International Astronomical Union's Standards of Fundamental Astronomy (SOFA) service has the responsibility of establishing and maintaining an accessible and authoritative set of algorithms and procedures that implement standard models used in fundamental astronomy. This poster not only gives a summary of usage and available algorithms, but also highlights tools for astrometry and galactic coordinates, which have been added since the last IAU General Assembly.
