Table information for 'casa_lines.line_tap'


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

Resource Description:

This is a rendering of the CASA Offline Splatalogue in a draft LineTAP, mainly intended to enable verification of the standard. This is not recommended for production yet. In particular, many InChIs are known wrong, and we have skipped several hundred lines because we did have no InChIs for their species at all.
