Area coverage of catalogs BCScat (*) and matched BCScat x SDSS DR10 (**)
(*) GALEX final catalog of UV sources: Bianchi, L., Conti, A., and Shiao, B. 2014, J. Adv. Space Res., 53, 900
(**) (Bianchi et al. in preparation)
Areas total and by 10 degree latitude slices are given here; you can compute area coverage in any chosen region of the sky with the tool on this web site (coming soon)
Accuracy of area is better than 0.5sq.deg (much better in some slices), due to the finite size of the sky mosaic tesserae used in the calculation (see paper for explanation)
