Parkes Pulsar Data in CSIRO's Data Access Portal for 2020OCTS
by Lawrence Toomey
CSIRO's Data Access Portal contains the most comprehensive archive of pulsar data globally, with over 1.7 Petabytes from the Parkes radio telescope available for download. The DAP is VO compatible and can be queried using Virtual Observatory tools such as TOPCAT. This TOPCAT image is a Hammer-Aitoff projection in Galactic coordinates of the published observations from the DFB, CASPSR, BPSR and MEDUSA Parkes pulsar backends for the 2020OCT semester (the period October 1st 2020 to March 31st 2021). The insert shows observations around OJ 287 (P1090; Dey) . Approximately 2TB 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.
