Information on Service 'Web access to Bochum Galactic Disk Survey (BGDS) images'

[Use this service from your browser]

Further access options are discussed below

The Bochum Galactic Disk Survey is an ongoing project to monitor the stellar content of the Galactic disk in a 6 degree wide stripe centered on the Galactic plane. The data has been recorded since mid-2010 in Sloan r and i simultaneously with the RoBoTT Telecsope at the Universitaetssternwarte Bochum near Cerro Armazones in the Chilean Atacama desert. It contains measurements of about 2x10^7 stars over more than seven years. Additionally, intermittent measurements in Johnson UVB and Sloan z have been recorded as well.

Default Output Fields

The following fields are contained in the output by default. More fields may be available for selection; these would be given below in the VOTable output fields.

VOTable Output Fields

The following fields are available in VOTable output. The verbosity level is a number intended to represent the relative importance of the field on a scale of 1 to 30. The services take a VERB argument. A field is included in the output if their verbosity level is less or equal VERB*10.
