IPAC Table Validator

Apply name resolution/coordinate transformation.

     

This service

  1. checks whether an uploaded ASCII table is in IPAC Table Format;
  2. checks whether it satisfies some additional restrictions imposed by IRSA's Catalog Search Tool; and
  3. if requested, tries to reformat the table to IPAC Table Format, and then re-checks (1) and (2).
You will be provided with descriptions of any incompatibilities that are found. By default, it employs IRSA's name resolution/coordinate transformation to try to assign an RA and Dec to each target. For more details on using tables with IRSA services, see Table Upload Help.
