Known problems

  • downloading data in text format
    • Retrieved data can be downloaded in text format. However, not all the data are provided. Note that only one datum is available for specified elements, for example, only [Fe I/H] appears in the data even if [Fe II/H] is also available. We are planning to include all the available data in the database, together with other specified quantities and coordinates.
  • popup windows on the plot panels.
    • There are minor problems in popup windows when the data are plotted using the data retrieval subsystem. The popup windows provide information on data and references, but references are not displayed for Milky Way stars. This problem will be fixed in the future update.
  • time to plot data
    • In the current version, it takes long time to plot data using the data retrieval subsystem. In particular, the time to plot figures is unexpectedly long when the replot button is pressed. We expect to reduce time for this process.
  • radial velocities (RV)
    • The RV data are available for only one record for each object in each paper. We have all the records of RV monitoring for individual objects in the database, but we provide only the first record of monitoring through the web site for a technical reason. We are planning to fix this problem in future updates.
  • solar abundances
    • We have taken into account the difference in adopted solar abundances, but not all the papers provide information on them. In such cases, we use Grevesse et al. (1996) as reference solar abundances. The list of data without the information on solar abundances will be uploaded later.

Important notes when using the database

Last update on 21 September 2018


  • The database retrieval system creates the figures using gnuplot version 4.2.6. Therefore, the script downloaded from the server works with this version or later (maybe incompatible with version 4.0 and 3.X).
  • Object has sometimes two or more identifiers. For example, “CS31062-012” has other object names, “G268-32” and “LP706-7”. The SAGA database uses one ID for one object. In this case, you cannot search with the object name neither “G268-32” nor “LP706-7” in the data retrieval subsystem. In the database, the names of objects are used according to the following priority by the catalogue name.
    • CS > BS > HE > HD > BD > CD > DH > G > HIP
  • All the name registered in the database can be seen in
  • You can check the object IDs used in the database from the links in the list.
  • Abundance conversion between log-e, [X/H], and [X/Fe] is done by using solar chemical composition based on the adopted solar abundances in the literature. If they are not available, we use photospheric abundances in Table 1 of Grevesse et al. (1996, ASPC, 99, 117).

Data plot

  • A-1: Plotted data are automatically classified into categories according to the following criteria.
    • EMP: stars with [Fe/H] ≤ -2.5. Although the value of [Fe/H] depends on the observations, it is simply taken from the data in the most recent published paper, the largest resolution for observing set ups, and the smallest error bars. Fe I is preferably adopted for identical paper.
    • C-rich: stars with [C/Fe] ≥ 0.7. The selection condition of the data is the same as for EMP. “CEMP” means “C-rich” and “EMP”.
    • RGB: stars with Teff ≤ 6000 K and log g ≤ 3.5. Otherwise, the star is classified as “MS”.
    • CEMP-s: stars that satisfy C-rich and EMP criteria and [Ba/Fe] ≥ 0.5.
    • CEMP-no: stars that satisfy C-rich and EMP criteria and [Ba/Fe] < 0.5.
  • A-2: Number of plotted data (top) and Pearson coefficient for plotted data (bottom). In calculating the coefficient, data with upper limits are excluded.
  • A-3: Arrows show the upper limits for derived values.

  • Nov. 21, 2008
    • Data scoring is introduced. Initial choice of data to be plotted is now determined by the score of individual data. The score is calculated based on the spectral resolution, published year, the size of error bars, and the type of adopted line to derive abundances.
    • Object names are unified according to the SIMBAD database. Multiple definitions of object names are removed since this version.
  • Jun. 23, 2008: beta version 1.0 released
    • Improvement
      • Almost all known bugs in 0.13beta were fixed.
      • Some changes in user interface (see tutorial for detail.)
  • Dec. 17, 2007: version 0.13beta
    • Improvement
      • Bug fix: calculation of correct errors in [X/Y] (Known problem in beta 0.11)
      • Bug fix: quick plotting for histograms (Known problem in beta 0.11)
      • Enable to plot with position and radial velocity.
  • Oct. 24, 2007: beta version 0.12
    • Improvement
      • Bug fix: search by [X/Y] for X-axis (Not known in the prev. ver.)
      • Bug fix: search by [X/Y] for multiple axes (Not known in the prev. ver.)
      • Calculating error for [X/Y] by taking root mean square
  • Oct. 3, 2007: beta version 0.11
    • Improvement
      • Bug fix for retrieval function
      • Designation by ‘*’ for notification
      • Improvement in the speed of search and plot
    • Known problems
      • Error bars are not correct for [X/Y] plot.
      • It takes too much time to plot histgram.
      • Data selection is ambiguous. In many cases, data to be plotted are chosen by publication year of paper.
  • Sep., 2007: beta version 0.1 released
