The interactive Data Discovery tool below features image and catalog data from the SMASH survey. You can:
  • Pan the sphere with your mouse
  • Zoom in and out with the mouse wheel or the buttons on the right
  • Click on the magnifying glass and enter an object or a coordinate to center the view
  • Open the layers button at top left and:
    • Change the opacity of the SMASH image layer with the slider
    • Overlay the SMASH catalog; with the catalog layer turned on, click on the arrow and then drag the mouse over a set of objects to see their catalog rows at bottom
    • Change the background layer
This tool uses Aladin Lite and HiPS, which were developed by the CDS, Strasbourg Observatory, France.
