Spectra Submission for Upload

 
FOLLOW THESE 3 STEPS TO SUBMIT SPECTRA FOR UPLOAD TO WISeREP:
 
1. Create a tarball of all relevant ascii (and preferably also FITS) files of the spectra; name it e.g. spectra4wiserep_from_john_20110814.tar.gz
* NOTE * The uploaded spectra should be fully reduced (WL and flux calibrated) but non-manipulated; i.e. NOT de-redshifted, de-reddened etc...
2. Prepare a meta-data list that will contain the required info for all relevant spectra:
Download this spreadsheet and fill in all columns following the two header lines. An example is shown in the 2nd sheet.
Alternatively, download this text file and add rows following (i.e. without deleting) the two header lines. Make sure that the columns are TAB delimited; ONE tab only between columns.
3. Send the above tarball/s and the accompanying meta-data list (spreadsheet or text file) by email to: wiserep@weizmann.ac.il
 
Please note the following for preparation of the meta-data list:
 
- Check that the no. of files specified in the list (ascii/fits/related-files) exactly match the no. of files archived in the tarball.
- Make sure that the filenames as stated in the list (2nd,3rd,last-two columns) are identical to the physical filenames.
- Clearly, the columns: objname,asciifile,obsdate must be filled in and correct.
- Shown in the 2nd header-line between [ ] are the inputs that should be applied if values are unknown or not necessary.
- If the object already exists in the system, no need to supply the object details (specify NULL in all object columns).
- If the object doesn't exist yet in the system (or if there's a doubt), provide as many object details as possible (Obj-RA, Obj-DEC, Type, Redshift...).
- Valid RA/DEC formats are - RA: hh:mm:ss.x OR dd.x; DEC: dd:am:as.x or dd.x (dd=deg, am=arcmin, as=arcsec).
- Obtain the Instrument-Id from the system (Instruments page).
   If the instrument is unknown set instid=NULL.
   If known but doesn't exist in the system write instead of the Id the tel+inst names (free text).
- Obtain the Obj-type-Id from the system (Object Types page).
   If type of the object is still unknown, set objtypeid=NULL.
   If known but doesn't exist in system write instead of the ID the objtype name (e.g. SN IIPn).
- Quality can be left NULL, or contain any of the values: Rapid, Final, Low, Med, High.
- The default for Spec-Type is Object. Valid values are: Object, Host, Sky, Arcs.
- If additional details can be supplied, please specify those in the Spec-Remarks column.
- Related-file1+2 may be files of any type (ascii,fits,graphical...), to be associated with the corresponding spectrum (e.g. 2D-fits, plots etc...).
