1.8 billion stars for the 50th anniversary of CDS

Posted by CDS admin on 13 June 2022 09:42 CEST



On Monday 13 June 2022, the Strasbourg Astronomical Data Centre (CDS) publishes the Data Release 3 of the ESA Gaia mission in the CDS services. This major data release coincides with the 50th anniversary year of the operations of the CDS (1972-2022), making it an ideal time to celebrate the integration of the 1.8 billion stars from Gaia DR3!

The CDS is a partner data centre for the publication of the Gaia DR3. The data are available in the CDS services VizieR, Aladin and the CDS catalogue cross matching service. The inclusion of these data into the CDS makes them interoperable with all of the CDS reference data including 22 000 catalogues and more than 1000 image surveys. Aladin and Aladin Lite visualisers provide an interactive all-sky view of the entire DR3 using the Hierarchical Progressive Survey (HiPS - https://aladin.cds.unistra.fr/hips/) system.
