Astro::Catalog::IO::GaUsercContributed Perl DocAstro::Catalog::IO::GaiaPick(3)

NAME
       Astro::Catalog::IO::GaiaPick - Catalogue	reader for GAIA	Pick Object
       files

SYNOPSIS
	 $cat =	Astro::Catalog::IO::GaiaPick->_read_catalog( \@lines );

DESCRIPTION
       This class provides a read method for catalogues	in the GAIA Pick
       Object catalogue	format.	This format is written by the Starlink GAIA
       application when	a user requests	the result of a	"Pick Object" are to
       be saved. The method is not public and should, in general, only be
       called from the "Astro::Catalog"	"read_catalog" method.

FORMAT
       The GaiaPick format is extremely	simple.	First there is an
       informational header that describes the subsequent columns. This	is a
       single line:

	 # name	  x y ra dec equinox angle   peak    background	fwhm (X:Y)

       (white space has	been compressed	in this	description to remove the need
       for line	wrapping). The results of the "Pick Object" are	then written
       to the following	lines, using up	two lines per pick as follows:

	 # Sunday February 08 2004 - 16:43:59
	 iras.sdf 153.3	151.5 00:42:45.757 +41:16:44.96	J2000 160.7 2.7	1.4 7.8	: 6.1

       The first line indicates	the date of the	pick. The second line contains
       the parameters of the source.

       Currently the reader does not attempt to	parse the first	line in	order
       to derive the column information. The assumption	is that	the columns
       are always in the same order.

SEE ALSO
       The GAIA	application can	be obtained from Starlink
       (http://www.starlink.ac.uk).
