BETA testers wanted
We have the beta test server running. If people are willing to help test stuff (without receiving credit - Sam is working on the new credit model) connect to

http://pogsbeta.theskynet.org/pogsbeta

It has 17 filter bands (GALEX, Pan-STARRS, SDSS, WISE, Herschel, Spizter) and new wrappers and new Android. I need to make sure the amount of disk I allow is enough for the new models.

Unfortunately the server will be shutdown once the testing is complete; so you won't get any credits for helping (sorry), but you will get my thanks.

New Data!
Good news everybody!
We've got some new data from our friends at Johns Hopkins with a whole raft new improvements and additions.
What does this mean?
We still have to test the new data with the new clients to make sure everything goes according to plan which we would love your help with. First we’ll do some in house testing over the weekend but (hopefully) on Monday I’ll be putting out a call to volunteers to help us test some of this new data, including the brand new android 5 client.
Note: due to the setup of the test server we won’t be maintaining credit which may or may not disappear without warning.

More Galaxies
Sorry folks - David is having a few problems with the new galaxies - we hope to have things flowing shortly. But he is doing the following to the new data which is pretty tricky:

    (a) adaptive smoothing across all bands, after initial resolution match (this next run will be Pan-STARRS & SDSS, then we'll add GALAX, WISE, Spitzer & Herschel)
    (b) foreground stellar masking
    (c) segmentation map defining the main galaxy in each input, derived from a "white-light" image
    (d) integrated SED placed artificially into pixel (1,1).


Also the new Web Site Security Certificate has been deployed.

The Android code is about to be loaded onto the test server so we hope to release it asap. 11 Mar 2015, 1:29:27 UTC · Comment


Run out of Galaxies
We'll run out of Galaxies over the weekend.

Next week we'll:


  • load new data using Pan-STARRS and SDSS
  • start using the stellar libraries with the 2003 version of the Bruzual & Charlot models
  • release the new Android code
  • switch to the latest wrapper code
