Does "coordinate system" = "gauge"?

Are "coordinate system" and "gauge" the same thing?
What about "coordinate transformation" and "gauge transformation"?

No, they're not the same. I'm not sure about more advanced theories, but in the context of electrodynamics gauge and coordinate system are different things.
