Interactive Catalogue of Galactic Planetary Nebulae

Joachim Köppen Kiel/Strasbourg/Illkirch July 2001

This is the first version of an interactive visualization tool applied to the Catalogue of Galactic Planetary Nebulae by Acker et al. (1992). It contains all directly observed data from all 1185 planetaries in that catalogue, plus the measurements of the interstellar extinctions taken from other sources.

Wait until the message "Catalog with 26 columns and 1185 objects constructed " appears in the white text window, and the buttons at the top are enabled. Depending on your location and the condition of the Net, it may take a minute or less. Thereafter, you navigate with the top buttons. Help and Explanations are available.

This tool is a specialized version of the CatPlot Applet which may deal with any catalogue written and kept by the user. The specifications of how such a catalogue file has to be prepared, are also to be found there .
