ADC_Keywords: Infrared sources ; Surveys ; Photometry, infrared Mission_Name: AKARI Keywords: infrared: general - techniques: image processing - surveys Description: The AKARI Infrared Astronomical Satellite observed the whole sky in the far infrared (50-180µm) and the mid-infrared (9 and 18µm) between May 2006 and August 2007 (Murakami et al. 2007PASJ...59S.369M) The AKARI/IRC Point Source Catalogue Version 1.0 provides positions and fluxes for 870,973 sources observed with the InfraRed Camera (IRC): 844,649 sources in the S9W filter, and 194,551 sources in the L18W filter; the "Note (1)" section below provides a summary of the IRC filter characteristics. Recommendation: The users of the catalogue are requested to read the documents carefully before critical discussions of the data.

Note (1): the filter characteristics are: ------------------------------------------------- Filter: S9W L18W ------------------------------------------------- Center(um): 9 18 Width(um): 4.10 9.97 Range(um): 6.7-11.6 13.9-25.6 Pixel("): 9.4x9.4 10.4x9.4 Limit(mJy): 50 120 [at 5σ] ------------------------------------------------- Note (2): The sources should be referred in the literatures by their full name (AKARI-IRC-V1) followed by the letter 'J' and the objName, e.g. AKARI-IRC-V1 J0123498-025805 Note (3): Four-level flux quality indicator: 3 = high quality (source confirmed and flux is reliable) 2 = source is confirmed but the flux is not reliable (see the flags) 1 = the source is not confirmed 0 = not observed Note (4): Bit flags of data quality in hexadecimal: 1 = not month confirmed. This means that the period between the first detection and the last detection is shorter than a month. 2 = saturated (not used this version); 4 = use events affected by the South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) (not used in this version), 8 = use edge events Combined values are represented by the sum, e.g. 9 = 8 + 1 = not month confirmed AND used edge events. Note (5): the value 1 means that the source is possibly more extended than the point spread function (>15.6arcsec) Note (6): average of major and minor axes of source extent = (a+b)/2
