Gaia 2 for Guide 9

You can download from this source sorted Gaia 2 data and a TDF for Guide


The original Gaia catalog can be downloaded from Gaia archive as gzip compressed CSV files (61 277 files in 588 GB). After uncompressing the files sizes sums up to 1 386 GB. The data are not sorted by any value, but by observation date. The date were saved with full real length, although often most of the last numbers has no relevance.


The data were downloaded with Meta Prodcuts Offline Explorer Pro. Using self-written Freebasic programs I extracted the interestant columns with precision of the given error and 2 more columns. Another program transferred the data into 1 deg zones and sorted them in this zone using Right Ascension as sorting column. At end a program is creating several catalogs with different datas and accuracies.
