We will need to apply proper motion corrections when matching reference catalogs to measured catalogs. This epic will implement that feature. This will require several steps:
- Implement standardized schema (per
- Implement correction code
- Write tests and verify performance
The construction of reference catalogs is briefly discussed in LDM-151 v4.1 §6.1, but we defer to
RFC-271 in terms of implementation detail. A deliverable for this epic will be documentation describing the format and contents of reference catalogs.
Per the comment below, this epic also covers implementing
RFC-368, including adding parallaxes to the reference catalogs.
