Catalogs from VizieR overlay
Posted by z-Schuyler Van Dyk on 22 October 2012 03:24 PM

The Catalogs from VizieR overlay function no longer works, because the format of the file returned by VizieR is no longer readable within Spot and Leopard.

The solution for any of the catalogs listed in that overlay function is to go to the original source of the catalog, or to VizieR directly, and reformat the catalog to IPAC table format (see http://irsa.ipac.caltech.edu/applications/DDGEN/Doc/ipac_tbl.html and http://irsa.ipac.caltech.edu/applications/TblCheck/ ). You can then read this reformatted table as an overlay in Spot and Leopard, using the Catalog File overlay function.
