SUMSS Catalogue Sky Coverage
The source catalogue contains the results of fitting two dimensional
gaussians to SUMSS mosaics. It contains the position, Peak flux, Total Flux
, source sizes and associated errors of each source found to a peak
limit of 6 mJy/beam at declination less than -50 degrees and 10 mJy/beam at
declination greater than -50 degrees. Positions in the catalogue are
accurate to within 2 arcseconds to the survey limit.
For more detail about the fitting procedures
and catalogue statistics you can download the catalogue paper
as a gzipped .ps file.
A sky coverage plot is shown below. As of 2008, March 11
we have catalogued 211,063 sources in 629 mosaics covering about
8100 square degrees of sky.
We encourcage users to
check the original images
if ever in doubt about any properties of a
source. We would also encourage users to check the
in case a source does not appear in the catalogue, some fainter sources may
have erronoeusly been removed by the decision tree.
