JSDC - a new catalog of computed stellar angular diameters 
We are pleased to make the announcement that a new all-sky catalogue of computed stellar angular diameters (JSDC) is now available online on the Centre de Donnees astronomiques de Strasbourg (CDS) server : http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr/cgi-bin/Vizi ... rce=II/300

The present catalogue contains stellar angular diameter for about 38500 bright stars (Vmag < 12.2, Kmag <11.5) obtained from an automated SearchCal results aggregation on the whole sky. For each star are given, the value of the limb-darkened angular diameter computed using a surface brightness method as well as the values of the uniform disk angular diameters estimated for the photometric bands B, V, R, I, J, H and K.
