gammapy.catalog provides convenient access to common gamma-ray source catalogs.
SourceCatalogHGPS- H.E.S.S. Galactic plane survey (HGPS)
SourceCatalogGammaCat- An open catalog of gamma-ray sources
SourceCatalog3FGL- LAT 4-year point source catalog
SourceCatalog4FGL- LAT 8-year point source catalog
SourceCatalog2FHL- LAT second high-energy source catalog
SourceCatalog3FHL- LAT third high-energy source catalog
SourceCatalog2HWC- 2HWC catalog from the HAWC observatory
SourceCatalog3HWC- 3HWC catalog from the HAWC observatory
For each catalog, a
SourceCatalog class is provided to represent the catalog table,
and a matching
SourceCatalogObject class to represent one catalog source and table row.
gammapy.catalog is independent from the rest of Gammapy. The typical use cases
are to compare your results against previous results in the catalogs (e.g. overplot a spectral model),
or to create initial source models for certain energy bands and sky regions.
