Table information for 'supercosmos.sources'

General

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

Resource Description: The SuperCOSMOS data primarily originate from scans of the UK Schmidt and Palomar POSS II blue, red and near-IR sky surveys. The ESO Schmidt R (dec < -17.5) and Palomar POSS-I E (dec > -17.5) surveys have also been scanned and provide an early (1st) epoch red measurement. Mirrored here is the source table containing four-plate multi-colour, multi-epoch data which are merged into a single source catalogue for general science exploitation. Within the GAVO DC, some column names have been adapted to local customs (primarily positions, proper motions).

Citing this table

This table has an associated publication. If you use data from it, it may be appropriate to reference 2001MNRAS.326.1279H (ADS BibTeX entry for the publication) either in addition to or instead of the service reference.

To cite the table as such, we suggest the following BibTeX entry:

@MISC{vo:supercosmos_sources,
