New ATNF Pulsar Catalogue Released

The pulsar group at ATNF has just released a new and up-to-date pulsar catalogue suitable for use by both pulsar experts and non-experts.
The catalogue currently contains information on 1300 spin-powered pulsars, anomalous X-ray pulsars and soft gamma-ray repeaters.
It features a versatile web interface which provides both tabular and plotted output.
Logical conditions on expressions of pulsar parameters, including distance from a nominated position, may be used to limit the data listed or plotted.
A total of 67 predefined pulsar parameters are available and up to four custom parameters may be defined using parameter expressions.
Full bibliographic information is available for all data listed.
Documentation describing the parameters and operation of the web interface, as well as a step-by-step tutorial on its use, are also provided.
