The BDNYC Database contains records for 198 brown dwarfs and includes information such as
photometry, parallaxes, spectra, etc.
The list of all available tables within the database can be found here.
The forms below allow you to explore the database by submitting an SQL query; performing a search by source ID, name, or coordinates; plot a spectrum; and check the inventory for a specific source.
You can also browse the database and examine the sources in a sky plot.
This application runs on Python and utilizes the
astrodbkit package to
generate queries to the database.
We recommend using astrodbkit
to work with your astronomy SQL databases.
This application has been created by David R. Rodriguez; you can grab a copy of the code here for use with your own databases.
