Information on Service 'Gaia DR2 time series datalink'

This service gives photometric time series for the roughly 500000 objects for which Gaia DR2 gives epoch photometry. Note that this is different from the ESAC datalink service in that it gives split time series for the three Gaia bands. There is a link to the original ESAC time series in our table, though. The ids passed to this service are Gaia DR2 source ids.

For a list of all services and tables belonging to this service's resource, see Information on resource 'Selections from Gaia Data Release 2 (DR2)'
