The Gaia-LSST Synergy

23 Feb 2015  ·  Ivezić Željko, Kahn Steven M., Eliason Patricia ·

We discuss the synergy of Gaia and the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) in the context of Milky Way studies. LSST can be thought of as Gaia's deep complement because the two surveys will deliver trigonometric parallax, proper-motion, and photometric measurements with similar uncertainties at Gaia's faint end at $r=20$, and LSST will extend these measurements to a limit about five magnitudes fainter... We also point out that users of Gaia data will have developed data analysis skills required to benefit from LSST data, and provide detailed information about how international participants can join LSST. read more
