MDS encapsulates the next generation MPC web services, both interactive and programmatic. Our new data-centric
web apps and APIs will be hosted here on the "data" subdomain.
(Beta) Where Are My Observations API - WAMO
Summary of Where Are My Observations - SWAMO
SWAMO lets you explore the outcomes of all submissions over the MPC's history at a month-level granularity,
and the SWAMO-R dashboard lets you explore the outcomes of the past six months worth of submissions at a
Added html documentation for designation identifier API day-level granularity. Visit the about page for more information.
(Beta) Designation Identifier API
The Designation Identifier API is intended to accept any type of ID and return all the other IDs associated
with the object. Click the link in the title for documentation and example usages.
(Alpha) MPC Explorer
MPC Explorer is a user-friendly web application that allows you to search for an object, resolve its identity,
and retrieve the following: Designation information, ephemeris, orbit, and observations. Recently updated to
use latest version of the Designation Identifier API, and can be used as the web-based front end, although the
remainder of the Explorer's functionality is still in development.
This tool allows you to compare the orbital parameters that are present in MPC's MPCORB.dat files with
JPL's values for the same objects.
