ESO Archive Frequently Asked Questions

CalSelector: What do all those icons in the request page mean?

The icons to the left of a dataset name indicate the completeness of the association between science and calibration files.

  • the association is complete (green tickmark, xml attribute complete="true": all of the intended files were successfully associated)
  • the association is incomplete (orange tickmark, xml attribute complete="false": some of the intended files are missing because, e.g., they have not yet been acquired at the telescope)
  • the association is empty (yellow tickmark: e.g. the input science files are outside of the tool's applicability period).

The icons in the rightmost column (“Access”) indicate whether the individual files are accessible to you (green tickmark) or not (e.g. because the file is still under proprietary period of another user; red no access sign).
