Introduction

About Splatalogue

Splatalogue collates and rationally organizes existing spectroscopic catalogues into a single resource for the astronomical community. The focus is on pure rotational and ro-vibrational transitions of astronomically-relevant molecules for observations in the microwave and millimeter-wave regions using current astronomical instrumentation such as ALMA, JVLA, GBT, amongst many others. As of February 2016, Splatalogue contains over 8.1 million transitions from 1233 species and is updated regularly. Splatalogue also features an interface that is Virtual Astronomical Observatory (VAO) compliant for interfacing with external software or websites.

The primary catalogue resources that Splatalogue references include:
