5 TB of new external tables!
In anticipation of the upcoming SMSS DR4, we are making available ~5 TB of new external tables in the TAP service of SkyMapper's All-Sky Virtual Observatory (ASVO) node.
Several of these are entirely new catalogues for the SkyMapper node:
CatWISE2020 Catalog (all-sky, W1/W2) -
NOIRLab Source Catalog (NSC) Data Release 2 (35,000 deg2, u/g/r/i/z/Y/VR) -
Southern Photometric Local Universe (S-PLUS) Survey Data Release 3 (2,000 deg2, u*/g/r/i/z + 7 narrow bands) -
Others represent updates to previous data releases:
DESI Legacy Imaging Surveys (LS) Data Release 9 (20,000 deg2, g/r/z) -
Dark Energy Survey (DES) Data Release 2 (5,000 deg2, g/r/i/z/Y) -
- GALAH Data Release 3 (589,000 stars) -
OzDES Data Release 2 (38,000 objects) -
The Million Quasars (Milliquas) catalog, version 7.10 (1.4 million AGNs) -
The AAVSO International Variable Star Index (VSX), version 2023-06-26 (2.3 million variable stars) -
The upcoming SMSS DR4 will be cross-matched against each of these (either within our own
dr4.master table or with
dr4_dist columns in the smaller catalogues themselves). But standalone ADQL queries can already be performed on these tables through this website or by sending queries directly to the TAP service from your preferred VO-compliant tools. For more detail on how to submit your TAP queries, see the instructions here.
