Allow magnitude filtering in catalogues

Pedro Gomez 1 year ago • updated 1 year ago 8

It would be great to have filtering capability over the catalog results. In particular over the magnitude fields but it could be also useful to other fields. This would make ESASky much more useful at for example preparing observations...

Dear Pedro,


We are pleased to announced that the filtering functionality is already available in ESASky v2.0: which has been released today at http://sky.esa.int.

Thanks !

Currently you can order any columns numerically by clicking on the column headers. Version 2.0 of ESASky, to be released on the 24th of October of 2017, will also have filtering capability in columns although it will be only text-based, but your request to do arithmetic filtering is in the list and will get higher priority thanks to your request.

We will let you know when it is implemented..

Thats nice!. I suggest to maintain the issue open util the numeric filtering is implemented.

I wonder if a SQL-like filtering capability can be implemented for sources so advanced queries can be performed.

For example to query based on magnitude:


"mag > 10 AND mag <15 ORDERED BY Name DEC"


Of course, you are right.. I suspected you were actually asking for numerical sorting, rather than alphanumeric sorting.. I move the ticket to open again and will close it is done.
