Datatype: IDM

IDM represents the cross-identifications with astronomical catalogues HD, DM, BS, GCVS, WDS, LS, LSS, and others. idm comes from Idam which stands for "identification d'amas".

DM numbers follow the HD convention:
CpD south of -52°,
CoD between -23° and -51°,
BD north of -23°.
Crosss-identifications have been taken from the published papers when possible, but a large part of the data has been obtained by the author.
