Automated

 




Visit the Astrometry homepage.

We have built a system to automatically recognize the pointing, rotation, and scale of any astronomical image, based on the content of the image pixels alone. We are using this to create correct, standards-based astrometric headers for every useful astronomical image ever taken, past and future, in any state of archival disarray. This is the first step in a set of projects to automate data analysis and scientific decision-making in the astronomical sciences.
