Information on resource 'SuperCOSMOS Sources'

The SuperCOSMOS data primarily originate from scans of the UK Schmidt and Palomar POSS II blue, red and near-IR sky surveys. The ESO Schmidt R (dec < -17.5) and Palomar POSS-I E (dec > -17.5) surveys have also been scanned and provide an early (1st) epoch red measurement. Mirrored here is the source table containing four-plate multi-colour, multi-epoch data which are merged into a single source catalogue for general science exploitation. Within the GAVO DC, some column names have been adapted to local customs (primarily positions, proper motions).
