2MASS All-Sky Data Release Extended Source Catalog Format

The version used by WCSTools includes a very small subset of these parameters in the following order:

raright ascension in degrees
decdeclination in degrees
designationJhhmmssss+ddmmsss
j_m_k20feJ magnitude
h_m_k20feH magnitude
k_m_k20feK magnitude
r_k20fesemi-major axis in arcseconds

from the User's Guide to the 2MASS All-Sky Data Release, section 2_3a. Extended Source Catalog Column Descriptions

The following table contains brief descriptions of the parameters provided for each source in the 2MASS All Sky Release XSC. The table is organized according to the broad function and utility of the parameters: positional information, photometric information, and source quality information. For XSC flag parameters, the meaning of each possible flag value is given, along with some practical information on their usage.

The XSC contains 389 columns of information per source (most of which is photometry.) Because extended sources are much more complicated than a point source, it takes many more parameters to characterize them. Some parameters are required to describe the spatial extent of a source, and many more are required to characterize the photometry. In addition to a number of standard measures of photometry, the xsc also reports the magnitude as measured in a number of different fixed-size apertures. The columns are described in the tables below. We have separated the columns according to their basic function and utility.

Photometry algorithms and performance, "Large Aperture Photometry: Profile Fitting, Isophotal & Total Mags," is discussed in Section IV.5e. The XSC FAQ and Primer, "How to Use the 2MASS XSC -- FAQ Sheet," is Section II.3b.


A. Name and Position Information

column Parameter Name View Format Units Description
1 jdate L 13.4f day Julian date of the source measurement accurate to ±3 minutes. This value is the mean Julian date of the scan observation in which this source falls. For a more precise value of Julian date for this source, see the jdate entry in the PSC using the pts_key index as a cross-reference.
--- Position Information
2 designation S 17s - Source designation formed from sexigesimal coordinates.
This is the object sequence designation, or object "name" as specified by the IAU recommendations on source nomenclature. It is derived from the J2000 sexigesimal coordinates of the source and has the form HHMMSSSS+/-DDMMSSS, where HH are the hours of right ascension, MM the RA minutes and SSS are the deci-seconds of RA. DD are the degrees in declination, MM are DEC minutes and SS the declination seconds. Note that both the RA deci-seconds of time and DEC seconds of arc are truncated rather than rounded, per the IAU recommendation. The full
naming convention for 2MASS All-Sky Release sources has the form "2MASX Jhhmmssss+ddmmsss[ABC...]", where "2MASX" indicates that the source is from the All-Sky XSC, "J" indicates the position is J2000, and the optional trailing letters are used to distinguish sources with otherwise duplicate names. The "2MASX J" prefix is not listed explicitly in the designation column.
3 ra S 10.6f deg Right ascension (J2000 decimal deg) based on peak pixel.
4 dec S 10.6f deg Declination (J2000 decimal deg) based on peak pixel.
5 sup_ra L 10.6f deg Super-coadd centroid RA (J2000 decimal deg).
6 sup_dec L 10.6f deg Super-coadd centroid Dec (J2000 decimal deg).
7 glon L 7.3f deg Galactic longitude (decimal deg) based on peak pixel. Galactic coordinate for 2MASS source derived by precessing reconstructed ra and dec to B1950, and performing rotational transformation into lII, bII coordinate system. This coordinate should not be used as an astrometric reference because it has been rounded to 0.001 deg.
8 glat L 7.3f deg Galactic latitude (decimal deg) based on peak pixel. Galactic coordinate for 2MASS source derived by precessing reconstructed ra and dec to B1950, and performing rotational transformation into lII, bII coordinate system. This coordinate should not be used as an astrometric reference because it has been rounded to 0.001 deg.

The visual classification score gives the source type for those sources examined "by eye":
-2 = unknown
-1 = no verification (i.e., not examined)
1 = galaxy
2 = non-extended (e.g., star, double, triple, artifact)
See
Visual Inspection of Extended Sources
68 cc_flg S 1s - indicates artifact contamination and/or confusion.
The contamination/confusion flag indicates whether the source's photometry and position may be affected by artifacts of, or confusion with, nearby bright stars. The flag consists of a single character string. Sources are tested for contamination and/or confusion in the order given below, and once a flag is applied to the source, testing is stopped in that band. The flag values indicate the source may be:
U: unreliable source; probable image artifact detection
C: affected by confusion with or artifact of a nearby bright star
A or a: known artifacts
z: in close promity to a large galaxy; these sources are usually junk
Z: Derived from the Large Galaxy Atlas
0: default value -- not contaminated

--- Other miscellaneous parameters
347 id_flg L 1hd - type/galaxy ID flag (0=non-catalog, 1=catalog, 2=LCSB).
This flag indicates the extended source catalog type as follows:
0 = extended source not found in another catalog
1 = extended source is found in galaxy catalog (ID found in id_cat field)
2 = LCSB (Low Central Surface Brightness) source
348 id_cat L 20s - matched galaxy's catalog name.
349 fg_flg L 6s - flux-growth convergence flag.
350 blk_fac L 1hd - LCSB blocking factor (1, 2, 4, 8).
351 dup_src L 1hd - Duplicate source flag. Used in conjunction with the use_src flag, this numerical flag indicates whether the source falls in a Tile overlap region, and if so, if it was detected multiple times.
  • "0" = The source does not fall within a Tile overlap region (use_src="1"), or it falls in an overlap region and there were no sources detected within 2" of its position in the overlapping Tile (use_src="0").
  • "1" = The source falls within a Tile overlap region, and there is one source detected within 2" of its position in the overlapping Tile.
  • ">1" = The source falls within a Tile overlap region, and there are multiple sources detected within 2" of its position in the overlapping Tile, and/or within its own Tile. This implies confusion in the multiple source resolution procedure.

352 use_src L 1hd - Use source flag. Used in conjunction with the dup_src flag, this numerical flag indicates if a source falls within a Tile overlap region, and whether or not it satisfies the unbiased selection rules for multiple source resolution.
  • "1" = The source does not fall in a Tile overlap region (dup_src="0"), or it falls in an overlap region, but lies farther from its scan edge than any apparition of the source in another Tile. A source must have use_src="1" to be considered part of the sub-Catalog that satisfies the 2MASS Level 1 Science Requirements
  • "0" = The source falls in a Tile overlap region, but does not have a detection within 2" of its position in any overlapping Tiles. PSC sources with use_src="0" will always have dup_src="0". Such objects are usually faint, and thus toggling above and below the detection limits, or may have moved between the scans of the different Tiles.
  • ">1" = The source falls within a Tile overlap region, and there are multiple sources detected within 2" of its position in the overlapping Tile, and/or within its own Tile. This implies confusion in the multiple source resolution procedure.

353 prox L 5.1f arcsec Proximity. The distance between this source and its nearest neighbor in the PSC. The pts_key of the nearest source is given in the pxcntr column. The effective resolution of the 2MASS system is approximately 5". Any source with prox < 6" is potentially confused with a nearby object, and should be used with caution.
354 pxpa L 3hd deg The position angle on the sky of the vector from the source to the nearest neighbor in the PSC, in degrees East of North. This column in null if prox=0.0, which occurs only for confused sources or from errors in the bandmerge process caused by confusion.
355 pxcntr L 10d - ext_key value of nearest XSC source.
356 dist_edge_ns L %5d arcsec The distance from the source to the nearest North or South scan edge. The scan edge is defined by the great-circle interpolation between the 3-band coverage corners. The equatorial coordinates of the 3-band coverage corners are given in the Scan Information Table, referenced by the scan_key. The first character of the dist_edge_flg indicates to which edge the source is closer.
357 dist_edge_ew L %3d arcsec The distance from the source to the nearest East or West scan edge. The scan edge is defined by the great-circle interpolation between the 3-band coverage corners. The equatorial coordinates of the 3-band coverage corners are given in the Scan Information Table, referenced by the scan_key. The second character of the dist_edge_flg indicates to which edge the source is closer.
358 dist_edge_flg L %2s - flag indicating which edges ([n|s][e|w]) are nearest to src.
359 pts_key L 10d - key to point source data DB record.
If the source has point source data (i.e. it is not an LCSB), this field will be set to the key of the record in the point source table containing the point source data. The point source data will also have the same date, hemisphere, scan, id keys.
360 mp_key L 5d - key to minor planet prediction DB record.
If a minor planet (asteroid) is predicted at this src's position, the field is set to the key of the record containing the minor planet prediction data (see the minor planet tbls). The minor planet data will also have the same date, hemisphere, scan, id keys.
361 night_key L 4d - key to night data record in "scan DB".

364 hemis L 1s - hemisphere (N/S) of observation. "n" = North/Mt. Hopkins; "s" = South/CTIO.
365 date L yyyy-mm-dd - The observation reference date for this source expressed in ISO standard format. This is the UT day value at sunrise for the night on which the source was observed. Because it is possible for the UT day to change during a night of observations, the actual UT date for a source measurement can differ from date by one day. Use the Julian Day value (jdate) for a more accurate determination of the observation time of the source.
366 scan L 3hd - scan number (unique within date).
367 coadd L 03hd - 3-digit coadd number (unique within scan).
