ADC_Keywords: Surveys ; Positional data ; Parallaxes, trigonometric ; Proper motions Keywords: parallaxes - solar neighborhood - stars: distances - stars: statistics - surveys - astrometry - photometry Description: United States Naval Observatory (USNO) Robotic Astrometric Telescope (URAT) Parallax Catalog south (UPCs) and north (UPCn). These data are based on the accepted paper for the Astronomical Journal (2018) by C. Finch, N. Zacharias, and W.-C. Jao, "URAT south parallax results: discovery of new nearby stars" The southern data are new, while the northern data contain a subset of the previously published UPC catalog after applying the more stringent selection criteria of the south data and supplementing the data with columns of the southern data. The previously published URAT Parallax Catalog (UPC) paper is: C. Finch and N. Zacharias (2016), AJ 151, 160 (arXiv:1604.06739). File Summary:

Note (1): some magnitudes are not available and there are blank entries in those tables for those columns. Note (2): Explanation of note code as follows: a = parallaxes from both the URAT north and south; b = a common proper motion companion, see Table 4, or 7 in paper c = new young star candidate; d = known young star
