The SVO archive of White Dwarfs from Gaia


The SVO archive of White Dwarfs from Gaia:

Currently, Gaia is making the largest, most precise three-dimensional map of our Galaxy by surveying more than a thousand million stars. Thanks to the superb capabilities of Gaia, an unprecedented number of white dwarfs with excellent both astrometric and photometric measurements is being discovered.

We made use of the Gaia data and the Virtual Observatory to build the following catalogues of white dwarfs:


The SVO archive of White Dwarfs from Gaia is the result of a joint collaboration between the Centro de Astrobiologí­a (CAB, CSIC-INTA) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). It has been developed in the framework of the Spanish Virtual Observatory project supported by the Spanish MINECO/FEDER through grant AyA2017-84089 , ASTERICS, and ESCAPE, projects supported by the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreements 653477 and 824064. The system is maintained by the Data Archive Unit of the CAB (CSIC -INTA).
