Epoch Photometry (gaiadr3.epoch_photometry)

The table has 11754237 rows, 48 columns.

Description

Epoch photometry. Each row in this table contains the light curve for a given object in bands G, BP and RP as stored in the DataLink Massive data base. This table makes extensive use of array types. It can be obtained selecting the RAW data structure option. A flat table (sparse cube), which one photometric point per source per row can be obtained using INDIVIDUAL or COMBINED. Note this table is not available through the main archive TAP interface, but via the Massive Data service, indexed by the VO Datalink protocol, described in Section cu9arch_product_linking.
