CDS Cross-match Service Release

Here is news from our international VO partner, CDS:

The CDS has released its cross-match service. This new tool allows one to cross-identify sources coming from two tables. Available tables include 9000+ VizieR tables with positions, SIMBAD data and user-uploaded (VO)tables.

Cross-match is performed either on the basis of the positions, or taking into account the error ellipses of the sources. Focus has been put on the performances of large-scale cross-match. For instance, it takes less than 30 seconds to cross-match a list of 50,000 positions with the NOMAD catalogue.

Connect to http://cdsxmatch.u-strasbg.fr to use this service.
The associated documentation is available at http://cdsxmatch.u-strasbg.fr/xmatch/doc/
