Table information for 'rr.stc_spatial'


Table Description: The spatial coverage of resources. This table associates footprints (ADQL geometries) with ivoids. The footprints are intended for resource discovery; a reasonable expectation for the resolution thus is something like a degree.

This table is available for ADQL queries and through the TAP endpoint.

Resource Description:

Tables containing the information in the IVOA Registry. To query these tables, use our TAP service.

For more information and example queries, see the RegTAP specification.

Sorted by DB column index. [Sort alphabetically]

coverage Coverage A geometry representing the area a resource contains data for; this should be tight at least with a resolution of degrees. N/A pos
ref_system_name Ref_system_name The reference frame coverage is written in. This is currently reserved and fixed to NULL. Clients should always add a constraint to NULL for this to avoid matching non-celestial services later. N/A pos.frame
