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. The superb capabilities of Gaia will provide us with an unprecedented number of white dwarfs with excellent both astrometric and photometric measurements. In particular, the expected number of Gaia white dwarfs will be nearly 400,000 up to 400 pc.

We made use of the Gaia data and the Virtual Observatory to construct our catalogues of white dwarfs. In particular, two catalogues are available from these pages:


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 and ASTERICS, a project supported by the European Commission Framework Programme Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation action under grant agreement n. 653477. The system is maintained by the Data Archive Unit of the CAB (CSIC -INTA).
