Observatory Codes
2010-03-03T10:10:00Z
List of Observatory Codes assigned by
the Minor Planet Center (MPC). The codes are used in cataloguing
astrometric observations of small bodies in the solar system. A code is
unique for a certain location and consists of three digits or one letter
and two digits.
In this representation, we give the observatory code, the geocentric
coordinates, and the observatory designation.
`_,
we give the geocentric and geodetic latitudes and the height
(more or less above sea level) computed from the parallax
constants given in the source. The data in MPC's list
is given to three to six decimal places, so the accuracy of
these values is usually not better than a couple of dozen meters
(and can be substantially worse at times).
