Advanced usage of HiPS and MOCs
[ASTERICS VO School, Nov 2018]
This tutorial uses TOPCAT and STILTS to study the Pleiades open star cluster. The user starts with getting TGAS data for the Pleiades and identifies its as a comoving subset. In a second step, the user matches HST data with Gaia observations using the interoperability of TOPCAT with VizieR to access the catalogs. The cross-match is refined using a color-magnitude diagram. The user can also use the TAP (Table Access Protocole) service of TOPCAT to run scripts for Gaia data. Finally, the user can upload the full TGAS catalog and investigate it with STILTS.
