Extract

The digitization of the planetary database of IAU has been performed, to give access to historical data in digital format. The database is constituted from the planetary photograph center collections, which was organized in 1961 at the request of the IAU (IAU conferences; Last reference: 1979, IAU Trans., XVIIA, 109). From this collection, 8473 images have been digitalized and are now accessible on line in a compressed format at the Web address: http://bdipwww.obspm.fr. The catalog information, including date and time of observations, and geometric configuration is completed for Jupiter and Saturn. The database contains plates recorded between 1870 and 1977:

Jupiter: 2715 images

Saturn: 357 images

Mars: 4661 images

Venus: 835 images

Mercury: 105 images
