twomass_xscThe XSC contains 389 columns of information per source (most of which is
photometry.) Because extended sources are much more complicated than a
point source, it takes many more parameters to characterize them. Some
parameters are required to describe the spatial extent of a source, and
many more are required to characterize the photometry. In addition to a
number of standard measures of photometry, the xsc also reports the
magnitude as measured in a number of different fixed-size apertures.
The table is organized according to the broad function and utility
of the parameters: Name and Position Information, Standard Photometry
and Orientation, Large Aperture Photometry, and Miscellaneous Photometry
and Characterization.

The GSC II is an all-sky catalog based on 1" resolution scans of the
photographic Sky Survey plates, at two epochs and three bandpasses,
from the Palomar and UK Schmidt telescopes (DSS).
Positions, magnitudes, and classifications are produced for all
objects on each plate.
The GSC2.3 has no magnitude limit. The parameters of the bright
objects, overexposed on the Schmidt plates, are taken from the Tycho-2

gaiaGaiaSource DR1 Catalog.
This table has an entry for every Gaia observed source as listed in the Main Dat
abase accumulating catalogue version from which the catalogue release has been g
enerated. It contains the basic source parameters, that is only final data (no e
poch data) and no spectra (neither final nor epoch).
solution_id
All Gaia data processed by the Data Processing and Analysis
Consortium comes tagged with a solution identifier. This is a numeric field
attached to each table row that can be used to unequivocally identify
the version of all the subsystems that where used in the generation of
the data as well as the input data used. It is mainly for internal DPAC
use but is included in the published data releases to enable end users
to examine the provenance of processed data products. To decode a given
solution ID visit.
meta.id;meta.version
long
source_id
A unique single numerical identifier of the source.
For the contents of Gaia DR1, which does not include Solar System
objects, the source ID consists consists of a 64-bit integer, least
significant bit = 1 and most significant bit = 64, comprising:
- a HEALPix index number (sky pixel) in bits 36 - 63; by definition
the smallest HEALPix index number is zero.
- a 2-bit Data Processing Centre code in bits 34 - 35; for example
MOD(sourceId / 4294967296, 8) can be used to distinguish between
sources initialised via the Initial Gaia Source List by the Torino
DPC (code = 0) and sources otherwise detected and assigned by Gaia
observations (code = >0)
- a 25-bit plus 7 bit sequence number within the HEALPix pixel in bits
1 - 32 split into:
- a 25 bit running number in bits 8-32;the running numbers are
defined to be positive, i.e. ver zero (except in the case of
forced empty windows)
- a 7-bit component number in bits 1-7
- one spare bit in bit 33
This means that the HEALpix index level 12 of a given source is
contained in the most significant bits. HEALpix index of 12 and lower
levels can thus be retrieved as follows:
- HEALpix level 12 = source_id / 34359738368
- HEALpix level 11 = source_id / 137438953472
- HEALpix level 10 = source_id / 549755813888
- HEALpix level n = source_id / 2 ^ 35 * 4 ^ (12 - level).

random_index
Random index which can be used to select smaller subsets of

The random index can be useful for validation (testing on 10 different
random subsets), visualization (displaying 1% of the data), and
statistical exploration of the data, without the need to download all

astrometric_delta_q
In the TGAS solution \tt astrometricDeltaQ (\Delta Q) indicates the
discrepancy between the Hipparcos proper motion and the TGAS proper
motion. A large value of \tt deltaQ could indicate non-linear motion
(e.g. n a binary).
The precise definition is
\Delta Q =
\begin{bmatrix}
\Delta\mu_{\alpha *} & \Delta\mu_{\delta}
\end{bmatrix}
\left(\vec{C}_\text{pm,\,T}+\vec{C}_\text{pm,\,H}\right)^{-1}
\begin{bmatrix}
\Delta\mu_{\alpha *} \\ \Delta\mu_{\delta}
\end{bmatrix}
where \Delta\mu_{\alpha *} = \mu_{\alpha *,\rm T}-\mu_{\alpha *,\rm H},
\Delta\mu_{\delta} = \mu_{\delta,\rm T}-\mu_{\delta,\rm H}, with T and H
indicating values from the Gaia DR1 (TGAS) solution and Hipparcos
catalogue. \vec{C}_\text{pm,\,T} and \vec{C}_\text{pm,\,H} are the
corresponding 2\times 2 covariance matrices.
In order to compute \Delta Q the two sets of proper motions must use the
same reference frame and the same reference epoch. Thus, the proper
motion components as given in the Hipparcos catalogue were rotated to
the Gaia DR1 reference frame, and then propagated to the Gaia reference
epoch.

astrometric_excess_noise
This is the excess noise \epsilon_i of the source. It measures the
disagreement, expressed as an angle, between the observations of a
source and the best-fitting standard astrometric model (using five
astrometric parameters). The assumed observational noise in each
observation is quadratically increased by \epsilon_i in order to
statistically match the residuals in the astrometric solution. A value
of 0 signifies that the source is astrometrically well-behaved, i.e.
that the residuals of the fit statistically agree with the assumed
observational noise. A positive value signifies that the residuals are
statistically larger than expected.
The significance of \epsilon_i is given by \tt
astrometricExcessNoiseSig (D). If D\le 2 then \epsilon_i is probably not
significant, and the source may be astrometrically well-behaved even if
\epsilon_i is large.
The excess noise \epsilon_i may absorb all kinds of modelling errors
that are not accounted for by the observational noise (image centroiding
error) or the excess attitude noise. Such modelling errors include LSF
and PSF calibration errors, geometric instrument calibration errors, and
part of the high-frequency attitude noise. These modelling errors are
particularly important in the early data releases, but should decrease
as the astrometric modelling of the instrument and attitude improves
over the years.
Additionally, sources that deviate from the standard five-parameter
astrometric model (e.g. n resolved binaries, exoplanet systems, etc.)
may have positive \epsilon_i. Given the many other possible
contributions to the excess noise, the user must study the empirical
distributions of \epsilon_i and D to make sensible cutoffs before
filtering out sources for their particular application.
In Gaia DR1, the excess source noise has the same interpretation as
described above for both the primary (TGAS) and secondary data sets. It
measures the disagreement between the five-parameter model and the
observations, augmented by the different priors used. Thus, in TGAS the
excess noise may be increased if the proper motion seen during the 14
months of Gaia observations are not in agreement with the proper motion
inferred from the Tycho-2/Gaia comparison. In the secondary solution the
excess noise may be increased if the Gaia observations indicate a proper
motion or parallax several times larger than the prior uncertainty.
The excess source noise is further explained in Sects .6 and 5.1.2 of
Lindegren et al. (2012).

astrometric_excess_noise_sig
A dimensionless measure (D) of the significance of the calculated \
tt
astrometricExcessNoise (\epsilon_i). A value D>2 indicates that the
given \epsilon_i is probably significant.
For good fits in the limit of a large number of observations, D should
be zero in half of the cases and approximately follow the positive half
of a normal distribution with zero mean and unit standard deviation for
the other half. Consequently, D is expected to be greater than 2 for
only a few percent of the sources with well-behaved astrometric
solutions.
In the early data releases \epsilon_i will however include instrument
and attitude modelling errors that are statistically significant and
could result in large values of \epsilon_i and D. The user must study
the empirical distributions of these statistics and make sensible
cutoffs before filtering out sources for their particular application.
The excess noise significance is further explained in Sect. 1.2 of
Lindegren et al. (2012).

astrometric_priors_used
Type of prior used in the astrometric solution:
- 0: No prior used
- 1: Galaxy Bayesian Prior for parallax and proper motion
- 2: Galaxy Bayesian Prior for parallax and proper motion relaxed by
factor 10
- 3: Hipparcos prior for position
- 4: Hipparcos prior for position and proper motion
- 5: Tycho2 prior for position
- 6: Quasar prior for proper motion
The Galaxy Bayesian Prior is defined in , where it is denoted
\sigma_{\varpi,F90} (for the parallax) and
\sigma_{\mu,F90}={\cal R}\sigma_{\varpi,F90}, with {\cal
R}=10r^{-1} (for proper motion). The Galaxy Bayesian Prior relaxed by
a factor 10 is 10\sigma_{\varpi,F90} and 10\sigma_{\mu,F90},
respectively.
For Gaia DR1 the only types of priors used are 2 (for the secondary data
set), 3 (for the Hipparcos subset of the primary data set), or 5 (for
the non-Hipparcos subset of the primary data set). Type 6 was used for
internal calibration purposes and alignment of the reference frame, but
the corresponding astrometric results are in general not published.

close doubles with separations below some 2 arcsec, truncated windows
have not been processed, neither in astrometry and photometry. The
transmitted window is centred on the brighter part of the acquired
window, so the brighter component has a better chance to be selected,
even when processing the fainter transit. If more than two images are
contained in a window, the result of the image parameter determination
is un-predictable in the sense that it might refer to either (or
neither) image, and no consistency is assured.

scan_direction_strength_k1
The scanDirectionStrength and scanDirectionMean quantify the

scanDirectionStrength[k-1] (k=1,2,3,4) is the absolute value of the
trigonometric moments m_k=\langle\exp(ik\theta)\rangle, where \theta is
the position angle of the scan and the mean value is taken over the
nObs[0] AL observations contributing to the astrometric parameters of
the source. \theta is defined in the usual astronomical sense: \theta=0
when the FoV is moving towards local North, and \theta=90^\circ towards
local East.
The scanDirectionStrength is a number between 0 and 1, where 0 means
that the scan directions are well spread out in different directions,
while 1 means that they are concentrated in a single direction (given by
scanAngleMean).
The different orders k are statistics of the scan directions modulo
360^\circ/k. For example, at first order (k=1), \theta=10^\circ and
\theta=190^\circ count as different directions, but at second order
(k=2) they are the same. Thus, scanDirectionStrength[0] is the degree of
concentration when the sense of direction is taken into account, while
scanDirectionStrength[1] is the degree of concentration without regard

scan_direction_mean_k4
The scanDirectionStrength and scanDirectionMean quantify the
distribution of AL scan directions across the source.
scanDirectionStrength[k-1] (k=1,2,3,4) is the absolute value of the
trigonometric moments m_k=\langle\exp(ik\theta)\rangle, where \theta is
the position angle of the scan and the mean value is taken over the
nObs[0] AL observations contributing to the astrometric parameters of
the source. \theta is defined in the usual astronomical sense: \theta=0
when the FoV is moving towards local North, and \theta=90^\circ towards
local East.
The scanDirectionStrength is a number between 0 and 1, where 0 means
that the scan directions are well spread out in different directions,
while 1 means that they are concentrated in a single direction (given by
scanAngleMean).
The different orders k are statistics of the scan directions modulo
360^\circ/k. For example, at first order (k=1), \theta=10^\circ and
\theta=190^\circ count as different directions, but at second order
(k=2) they are the same. Thus, scanDirectionStrength[0] is the degree of
concentration when the sense of direction is taken into account, while
scanDirectionStrength[1] is the degree of concentration without regard
to the sense of direction. A large value of scanDirectionStrength[3]
indicates that the scans are concentrated in two nearly orthogonal
directions.

phot_variable_flag
Flag indicating if variability was identified in the photometric G
band:
- source not processed and/or exported to catalogue
- Source not identified as variable
- source identified and processed as variable, see tables
PhotVariableSummary, PhotVariableTimeSeriesGfov,
PhotVariableTimeSeriesGfovStatisticalParameters, and Cepheid or
Rrlyrae for more details.
Note that for this data release only a small subset of (variable)
sources was processed and/or exported, so for many (known) variable
sources this flag is set to NOT AVAILABLE. No CONSTANT sources were
exported either.
