Welcome to the ExoDat Information System!
The ExoDat Information System is a search engine for exploring and displaying data from the CoRoT/Exoplanet channel database.
It is a unified source of information about objects in the potential survey zones of CoRoT, which are two almost circular regions of 15º radius each, centered on the Galactic plane at about 6h50m and 18h50m in right ascension, the so-called CoRoT eyes.
Data available in ExoDat includes :
- A photometric catalog of about 65 610 000 stars in the CoRoT-eyes, relying mainly on the PPMXL catalog, used as a reference for the positions and photometry in r', B, J, H and K bands;
- Spectral type, luminosity class and contamination estimation for all of the stars of the photometric catalog obtained form broad-band photometry;
- CoRoT instrumental settings for all the observed targets: photometric mask, position of the star on the CCD, mode of observation. For the targets, a more refined flux contamination is also given, as well as an estimation of the type of variability in the time domain, if any.
A detailed description of the Exodat database, datasets and services will soon be available : ExoDat documentation
