w1cc_map allwise_sc WISE Contamination and confusion map for this source in W1. This column contains the integer equivalent of the 9-bit binary number that specifies if the W1 measurement is believed to be contaminated by or a spurious detection of an image artifact. int 4      
The elements of the binary array are: S 0 0 0 O H 0 P D. The leftmost bit, S, differentiates whether the band-detection is believed to be a real detection contaminated by an artifact ("0") or a spurious detection of an artifact ("1"). The remaining bits are set to "1" to denote contamination by different types of artifacts according to the letters:
  • D - Diffraction spike. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by a diffraction spike of a nearby bright star on the same image.
  • P - Persistence. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by a short-term latent (persistence) image left by a bright source.
  • H - Halo. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by the scattered light halo associated with a bright star.
  • O (letter "o") - Optical ghost. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by an optical ghost image caused by a nearby bright source on the same image.

For example, a measurement that is believed to be a spurious detection of a diffraction spike and scattered light halo has a binary bit map value of "100001001" and w?cc_map=265.

smallint 2      
w1cc_map_str allwise_sc WISE Contamination and confusion string. This column is a character string that denotes all artifacts that may contaminate the W1 measurement of this source, in the priority order D,P,H,O,d,p,h,o. Lower-case letters denote cases where the source detection in this band is believed to be real but the measurement may be contaminated by the artifact. upper-case letters denote cases where the source detection in this band may be a spurious detection of an artifact. This string is "null" if there are no artifacts that affect the measurement in this band. The value that appears in first element of the cc_flags string is the left-most character in w1cc_map_str. If w1cc_map_str is "null", then the corresponding cc_flags entry is "0". varchar 9      
For example, a real detection that is contaminated by a diffraction spike and a latent (persistent) image has a w?cc_map_str="dp". A spurious detection of a diffraction spike that is also contaminated by a latent image has w?cc_map_str="Dp".

W1cov may differ from the integer frame coverage value given in w1m for two reasons. First, individual pixels in the measurement area may be masked or otherwise unusable, reducing the effective pixel count and thus the mean coverage value. Second, the effective sky area sampled by a pixels in single-exposure image varies across the focal plane because of field distortion. Distortion is corrected when coadding to generate the Atlas Images. Therefore, the effective number of pixels contributing to a pixel in the Atlas Coverage Map may be slightly smaller or larger than expected if there was no distortion. Third, the values of w1m may be artificially reduced for sources that are covered by saturated 3-Band Cryo single-exposures.

The Q value is the fraction of all cases to be at least as large as that observed if the null hypothesis is true. The null hypothesis is that the flux is emitted by a non-variable astrophysical object. It may be false because the object is a true variable. It may also be false because the flux measurement is corrupted by artifacts such as cosmic rays, scattered light, etc. The smaller the Q value, the more implausible the null hypothesis, i.e., the more likely it is that the flux is either variable or corrupted or both.

w2cc_map allwise_sc WISE Contamination and confusion map for this source in W2. This column contains the integer equivalent of the 9-bit binary number that specifies if the W2 measurement is believed to be contaminated by or a spurious detection of an image artifact. int 4      
The elements of the binary array are: S 0 0 0 O H 0 P D. The leftmost bit, S, differentiates whether the band-detection is believed to be a real detection contaminated by an artifact ("0") or a spurious detection of an artifact ("1"). The remaining bits are set to "1" to denote contamination by different types of artifacts according to the letters:
  • D - Diffraction spike. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by a diffraction spike of a nearby bright star on the same image.
  • P - Persistence. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by a short-term latent (persistence) image left by a bright source.
  • H - Halo. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by the scattered light halo associated with a bright star.
  • O (letter "o") - Optical ghost. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by an optical ghost image caused by a nearby bright source on the same image.

For example, a measurement that is believed to be a spurious detection of a diffraction spike and scattered light halo has a binary bit map value of "100001001" and w?cc_map=265.

This column is a character string that denotes all artifacts that may contaminate the W2 measurement of this source, in the priority order D,P,H,O,d,p,h,o. Lower-case letters denote cases where the source detection in this band is believed to be real but the measurement may be contaminated by the artifact. Upper-case letters denote cases where the source detection in this band may be a spurious detection of an artifact. This string is "null" if there are no artifacts that affect the measurement in this band. The value that appears in second element of the cc_flags string is the left-most character in w2cc_map_str.

W2cov may differ from the integer frame coverage value given in w2m for two reasons. First, individual pixels in the measurement area may be masked or otherwise unusable, reducing the effective pixel count and thus the mean coverage value. Second, the effective sky area sampled by a pixels in single-exposure image varies across the focal plane because of field distortion. Distortion is corrected when coadding to generate the Atlas Images. Therefore, the effective number of pixels contributing to a pixel in the Atlas Coverage Map may be slightly smaller or larger than expected if there was no distortion.

The Q value is the fraction of all cases to be at least as large as that observed if the null hypothesis is true. The null hypothesis is that the flux is emitted by a non-variable astrophysical object. It may be false because the object is a true variable. It may also be false because the flux measurement is corrupted by artifacts such as cosmic rays, scattered light, etc. The smaller the Q value, the more implausible the null hypothesis, i.e., the more likely it is that the flux is either variable or corrupted or both.

w3cc_map allwise_sc WISE Contamination and confusion map for this source in W3. This column contains the integer equivalent of the 9-bit binary number that specifies if the W3 measurement is believed to be contaminated by or a spurious detection of an image artifact. int 4      
The elements of the binary array are: S 0 0 0 O H 0 P D. The leftmost bit, S, differentiates whether the band-detection is believed to be a real detection contaminated by an artifact ("0") or a spurious detection of an artifact ("1"). The remaining bits are set to "1" to denote contamination by different types of artifacts according to the letters:
  • D - Diffraction spike. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by a diffraction spike of a nearby bright star on the same image.
  • P - Persistence. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by a short-term latent (persistence) image left by a bright source.
  • H - Halo. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by the scattered light halo associated with a bright star.
  • O (letter "o") - Optical ghost. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by an optical ghost image caused by a nearby bright source on the same image.

For example, a measurement that is believed to be a spurious detection of a diffraction spike and scattered light halo has a binary bit map value of "100001001" and w?cc_map=265.

w3cc_map_str allwise_sc WISE Contamination and confusion string. This column is a character string that denotes all artifacts that may contaminate the W3 measurement of this source, in the priority order D,P,H,O,d,p,h,o. Lower-case letters denote cases where the source detection in this band is believed to be real but the measurement may be contaminated by the artifact. Upper-case letters denote cases where the source detection in this band may be a spurious detection of an artifact. This string is "null" if there are no artifacts that affect the measurement in this band. The value that appears in third element of the cc_flags string is the left-most character in w3cc_map_str. If w3cc_map_str is "null", then the corresponding cc_flags entry is "0". varchar 9      
For example, a real detection that is contaminated by a diffraction spike and a latent (persistent) image has a w?cc_map_str="dp". A spurious detection of a diffraction spike that is also contaminated by a latent image has w?cc_map_str="Dp".

W3cov may differ from the integer frame coverage value given in w3m for two reasons. First, individual pixels in the measurement area may be masked or otherwise unusable, reducing the effective pixel count and thus the mean coverage value. Second, the effective sky area sampled by a pixels in single-exposure image varies across the focal plane because of field distortion. Distortion is corrected when coadding to generate the Atlas Images. Therefore, the effective number of pixels contributing to a pixel in the Atlas Coverage Map may be slightly smaller or larger than expected if there was no distortion.

The Q value is the fraction of all cases to be at least as large as that observed if the null hypothesis is true. The null hypothesis is that the flux is emitted by a non-variable astrophysical object. It may be false because the object is a true variable. It may also be false because the flux measurement is corrupted by artifacts such as cosmic rays, scattered light, etc. The smaller the Q value, the more implausible the null hypothesis, i.e., the more likely it is that the flux is either variable or corrupted or both.

w4cc_map allwise_sc WISE Contamination and confusion map for this source in W4. This column contains the integer equivalent of the 9-bit binary number that specifies if the W4 measurement is believed to be contaminated by or a spurious detection of an image artifact. int 4      
The elements of the binary array are: S 0 0 0 O H 0 P D. The leftmost bit, S, differentiates whether the band-detection is believed to be a real detection contaminated by an artifact ("0") or a spurious detection of an artifact ("1"). The remaining bits are set to "1" to denote contamination by different types of artifacts according to the letters:
  • D - Diffraction spike. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by a diffraction spike of a nearby bright star on the same image.
  • P - Persistence. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by a short-term latent (persistence) image left by a bright source.
  • H - Halo. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by the scattered light halo associated with a bright star.
  • O (letter "o") - Optical ghost. Source may be a spurious detection of or contaminated by an optical ghost image caused by a nearby bright source on the same image.

For example, a measurement that is believed to be a spurious detection of a diffraction spike and scattered light halo has a binary bit map value of "100001001" and w?cc_map=265.

w4cc_map_str allwise_sc WISE Contamination and confusion string. This column is a character string that denotes all artifacts that may contaminate the W4 measurement of this source, in the priority order D,P,H,O,d,p,h,o. Lower-case letters denote cases where the source detection in this band is believed to be real but the measurement may be contaminated by the artifact. Upper-case letters denote cases where the source detection in this band may be a spurious detection of an artifact. This string is "null" if there are no artifacts that affect the measurement in this band. The value that appears in fourth element of the cc_flags string is the left-most character in w4cc_map_str. If w4cc_map_str is "null", then the corresponding cc_flags entry is "0". varchar 9      
For example, a real detection that is contaminated by a diffraction spike and a latent (persistent) image has a w?cc_map_str="dp". A spurious detection of a diffraction spike that is also contaminated by a latent image has w?cc_map_str="Dp".

W4cov may differ from the integer frame coverage value given in w4m for two reasons. First, individual pixels in the measurement area may be masked or otherwise unusable, reducing the effective pixel count and thus the mean coverage value. Second, the effective sky area sampled by a pixels in single-exposure image varies across the focal plane because of field distortion. Distortion is corrected when coadding to generate the Atlas Images. Therefore, the effective number of pixels contributing to a pixel in the Atlas Coverage Map may be slightly smaller or larger than expected if there was no distortion.

The Q value is the fraction of all cases to be at least as large as that observed if the null hypothesis is true. The null hypothesis is that the flux is emitted by a non-variable astrophysical object. It may be false because the object is a true variable. It may also be false because the flux measurement is corrupted by artifacts such as cosmic rays, scattered light, etc. The smaller the Q value, the more implausible the null hypothesis, i.e., the more likely it is that the flux is either variable or corrupted or both.
