The Gaia-PS1-SDSS (GPS1) Proper Motion Catalog

This catalog combines Gaia DR1, Pan-STARRS 1, SDSS and 2MASS astrometry to compute proper motions for 350 million sources across three-fourths of the sky down to a magnitude of mr≈20. Positions of galaxies from Pan-STARRS 1 are used to build a reference frame for PS1, SDSS, and 2MASS data. Gaia DR1 is adapted to that reference frame by exploiting that locally, proper motions are linear.

GPS1 has a characteristic systematic error of less than 0.3 mas/yr, and a typical precision of 1.5−2.0 mas/yr. The proper motions have been validated using galaxies, open clusters, distant giant stars and QSOs. In comparison with other published faint proper motion catalogs, GPS1's systematic error (<0.3 mas/yr) is about 10 times better than that of PPMXL and UCAC4 (>2.0 mas/yr). Similarly, its precision (~1.5 mas/yr) is an improvement by ∼ 4 times relative to PPMXL and UCAC4 (∼6.0 mas/yr). For QSOs, the precision of GPS1 is found to be worse (∼2.0−3.0 mas/yr), possibly due to their particular differential chromatic refraction (DCR).

The Data Center is currently running in emergency mode after our database server failed catastrophically (see our blog for infos and updates).

This means, in particular, that services built on top of large tables may currently be broken. Since our replacement server is much slower than our usual machine, restoring them will take quite some time.
