Parkes Pulsar Data Published in CSIRO's Data Access Portal for 2018OCTS
(by Lawrence Toomey)
CSIRO's Data Access Portal (https://data.csiro.au/) contains the most comprehensive archive of pulsar data globally, with over 1.2 Petabytes from the Parkes radio telescope available for download. The DAP is Virtual Observatory compatible and can be queried using VO tools such as TOPCAT (http://www.star.bris.ac.uk/~mbt/topcat). This TOPCAT image shows the published observations from the DFB, CASPSR, BPSR and MEDUSA Parkes pulsar backends for the 2018OCT semester (the period October 1st 2018 to March 31st 2019). Approximately 3TB of new pulsar data are added to the archive each day. Access to new data is restricted to project teams during the statutory 18 month embargo period, thereafter the data become public.
