DR6 데이터가 공개됩니다
This is to remind everybody that the Sixth Data Release of the SDSS is scheduled to become public one week from today, Wednesday, June 27.
We're still working on the documentation of this data release, as you can see in the draft DR6 paper: ftp://ftp.astro.princeton.edu/strauss/sdss/dr6.pdf and DR6 website: http://www.sdss.org/dr6
The data themselves (i.e., links to skyserver, das, and cas) can be found in links off: http://www.sdss.org/dr6/access/index.html
Please try this out, and send e-mail to sdss-archive if you have troubles or notice mistakes.
In brief, new things for DR6 include:
-Extensive SEGUE imaging and spectroscopy
-Ubercalibrated photometry, available through the CAS
-All spectra reprocessed through a new version of idlspec2d
-Extensive stellar parameter estimation, from the SEGUE team
-The results of the specBS code, available through the CAS
-A complete overhaul of the sector/region code, making it much more robust
We plan to put an announcement of the release out in the AAS Electronic Bulletin in July.
