    EURONEAR - Tools

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

  Tool  Description
   
  Planning Tools
  Planning  Generate a list of observable NEAs during one night (follow-up of newly discovered using the Spaceguard Priority list)
  Planning Recovery  Generate a list of observable NEAs during one night (recovery of older one-opposition NEAs using the MPC lists)
  Long Planning  Generate a list of observable NEAs for a longer timespan (used for photometry or spectroscopy)
 
  Precovery Tools
  Precovery Standard  Standard (p)recovery of known asteroids and NEAs uploading a telescope pointing archive in a standard format
  Precovery CFHTLS  Precovery of known asteroids and NEAs from the CFHT Legacy Survey archive (25,000 MegaCam images 2003-2009)
  Precovery Suprime-Cam  Precovery of known asteroids and NEAs for the Subaru Supreme-Cam archive (70,000 images 1999-2011)
  Precovery INT  Precovery of known asteroids and NEAs for the ING/INT WFC image archive (about 562,000 images 2002-2016)
  Precovery ESO  Precovery of known asteroids and NEAs for the ESO/MPG WFI image archive (about 121,000 images 1999-2012)
  Mega Precovery  Identify images potentially containing any known asteroid or comet in the Mega Archive (11 million images by Sep 2017)
 Mega Precovery beta  A tool to unify past work (in work, please do not use)
 
  CCD Searching Tools
  Find CCD  Draws NEA positions on ccd matrix and also uncertainity ellipses for a number of telescope image collections
  Find Suprime-Cam CCD  Draws NEA positions and also uncertainity ellipses for Subaru Suprime-Cam mosaic camera
 
  Quality Control Tools
  O-C Calculator  Derives observed minus calculated (O-C) for one short NEA observation
  Astro Check  Tests MPC reports for any number of Solar System objects observations (MPC format)
 
  Mega Archive Generic Tools
  MASFO  Mega Archive Search for Fixed Objects (one object given by name or coordinates)
