The DR6 of RAVE releases calibrated spectra.
As 2dF instrument produces multiple spectra per observation, in RAVE terminology a field, covering an area of up to XbyX arcmin. You can retrieve all spectra of such a field.
You can find all fits files (spectra) for a field in the
"ravedr6"."dr6_spectra" table, accessible by the query interface.
How to view a field
Each field has a unique field number which you can get by cutting off the fiber number (the last tree digits and the
_). Each field page provides a list of all processed spectra and observational parameters of this field.
You can access a field page by using the prefix
https://www.rave-survey.org/fields/ and appending its shortened
Here is an example using
rave_obs_id=20100502_1050m50_031: cut the last four chars to get the RAVE
The observation is accessible with field : https://www.rave-survey.org/fields/RAVE_20100502_1050m50 Clicking on the link will open up the field page with basic properties of the observation.
