The EFIGI (Extraction de Formes Idealisées de Galaxies en Imagerie) project proposes to address the computational aspects of galaxy morphometry and to develop a robust and scalable solution to measure galaxy morphologies for numbers of objects in wide imaging surveys. The participating laboratories are the IAP, the LTCI and the LRDE in Paris, the LAM in Marseille, the OMP in Toulouse and the CRAL in Lyon.
May 16, 2011: V1.6.1 fixes an issue where the α and δ coordinates would be inadvertently swapped for some objects.
Jul 28, 2011: V1.6.2 fixes corrupted B/T values for some early type galaxies.
Jan 1, 2012: added archive containing colour g,r,i composite images in PNG format.
