    EURONEAR - Tools

Here we provide some public tools for data mining, planning and quality control of NEA observations.
They were used for past EURONEAR work and are provided for free by anyone, with the request to add a proper acknowledgement in your projects.

ToolDescription
 
Planning Tools
PlanningGenerate a list of observable NEAs during one night (follow-up of newly discovered NEAs using the Spaceguard Priority list)
Planning RecoveryGenerate a list of observable NEAs during one night (recovery of older one-opposition NEAs using the MPC lists)
Long PlanningGenerate a list of observable NEAs for a longer timespan (used for photometry or spectroscopy)
 
Data Mining Tools
Precovery StandardStandard (p)recovery of known asteroids and NEAs uploading a telescope pointing archive in a standard format
Precovery CFHTLSPrecovery of known asteroids and NEAs from the CFHT Legacy Survey archive (25,000 MegaCam images 2003-2009)
Precovery Suprime-CamPrecovery of known asteroids and NEAs from the Subaru Supreme-Cam archive (70,000 images 1999-2011)
Precovery INTPrecovery of known asteroids and NEAs from the ING/INT WFC image archive (about 562,000 images 2002-2016)
Precovery ESOPrecovery of known asteroids and NEAs from the ESO/MPG WFI image archive (about 121,000 images 1999-2012)
Mega Precovery v.1Identify images potentialy containing any asteroid (including NEA) or comet in the Mega-Archive (11 million images by Sep 2017)
Mega Precovery v.2Identify images potentialy containing any asteroid (including NEA) or comet in the Mega-Archive (11 million images by Sep 2017) - version 2
MASFOMega Archive Search Fixed Objects - search for images containing one star, galaxy, nebulae, given by name or coordinates
 
CCD Searching Tools
Find CCDOverlays NEA positions and their uncertainity regions above any given image taken with a major mosaic camera
Find CCD SubaruOverlays NEA positions and their uncertainity regions above any given Suprime-Cam mosaic image
 
Quality Control Tools
O-CDerives Observed minus Calculated (O-C) differences for one short NEA observation
AstrocheckValidates MPC reports of measured asteroid or comet astrometry, assumining a linear model for a short observation
