ACDS at a glance

As part of the pipeline, the source positions are sent to the Archival Catalogue and Database Subsystem (ACDS) for correlation with catalogues at the CDS. Below is a short description of the process, the products and the catalogues queried.

Correlation algorithm

The ACDS retains all archival catalogue entries located within the 99.73% confidence region (equivalent to 3 gaussian sigma) around the position of the EPIC detection. The corresponding error ellipse takes into account systematic and statistical uncertainties on the positions of both EPIC and archival catalogue entries as well as the sky extension for Simbad entries. No proper motion correction is applied to archival entries. The ACDS assumes that the error distribution of EPIC positions is represented by the 2-D Gaussian distribution. Further information can be found in Rosen et al. 2016, A&A, 590A. section 6.

Source cross-correlation results FITS HTML SRCRES All measurements available for archival entries in correlation with EPIC sources. Entries are grouped by archival catalogue. Direct link to this page is available from the summary page.
FoV cross-correlation summary FITS HTML FOVSUM Archival catalogue entries found in EPIC field of view (sorted by right ascension) independently of their correlation with EPIC sources. The list of catalogues searched is a subset of those queried around EPIC positions. This page gives a summary of the archival data and provides links to detailed catalogue extractions.
FoV cross-correlation results FITS HTML FOVRES All measurements available for archival entries with positions within the EPIC field of view (independently of their correlation with EPIC sources). Entries are grouped by archival catalogue. Direct link to this page is available from the summary page.
Catalog plot PDF CATPLT Positions of a selection of archival catalogue entries present in the field of view overlayed on an EPIC image.
XMM-Rosat image PDF ROSIMG XMM images are shown as
red contours overlayed on a grey-scale ROSAT image extracted from pointed or survey observations. Green crosses show the positions of EPIC sources. This product is not generated when no ROSAT observation covers the EPIC field of view.
