List of Exoplanet Catalogues

Below is a list of Exoplanet Catalogues. A list of lists, a Meta-Catalogue of Exoplanets. Very handy for cross-referencing exoplanet data. I will continually update this particular post as I come across new ones. You may come back to this post by clicking on the keyword "catalogue" from the tag-cloud on the lower right column.


Extrasolar Planets Encyclopaedia
Description: The most updated one, and has the most options for interactive filtering and sorting. And its the oldest one too, i think.

New Worlds Atlas
Description: This one has a nice visual interface and a cool website. It has some nice filters for you to extract the relevant data that you need from the dataset.

California and Carnegie Planet Search
Description: This one has features a Sortable Table by clicking on the table headers.

Planetary Biology
Description: This is the most interesting catalogue since it ranks planets according to the likelihood of life. Though it also uses data from the Exoplanet Encyclopedia.

Geneva Observatory
Description: I dont know what to say yet.

Working Group on Extrasolar Planets
Description: A simple list of exoplanets. No interface.

Transiting Planets
Description: List of transiting planets

List of Stars with Confirmed Exoplanets
Description: A good reference list.

Paris Observatory Catalog of Exoplanets
Description: A catalogue maintained by the French-led Paris Observatory group. A good up-to-date list.

Description: A good source of data about Stars and Exoplanets. Combo is good!

Exoplanetology on Freebase
Description: A new entry on freebase that opens up an open collaborative effort for maintaining the list. Data that would not have been included in the dataset are taken into account and organized. Another advantage is that freebase has an API which opens up the data set for more robust interactive applications. Anyone with a serious interest in exoplanets may contribute to this list, but you need to sign up for a freebase account.
