In this context, and to answer questions that have been raised several times, it seems to be also useful to develop parallel databanks on
Although such questions has been often raised, no progress has been done in the realisation of appropriate databanks.
your collaboration would be very important!!
Therefore I would appreciate receiving data files, collection of information, advices.
If you think that this kind of work is not justified, please express also your thoughts to avoid loosing time.
As it does not seems feasible to develop uniform numbering systems, especially for globular clusters due to the large number of stars and clusters, subdirectories will contain the data published under the relevant numbering system. Published cross-references will of course be integrated to permit further data manipulation.
I shall start from the globular cluster list of the master catalogue of William Harris and the works by Bica et al. for the Magellanic Clouds.
If you have better ideas, please contact me. I shall be very happy to receive help in such a project which concerns the whole community on star clusters.
