Asteroid Lightcurve Data Base (LCDB)

The Asteroid Lightcurve Data Base (LCDB) is a set of files generated from a MySQL database that includes information directly and indirectly obtained from observations made to determine the period and/or amplitude of asteroid lightcurves. The information is taken from numerous journals and other sources. Its main purpose is to provide a central location for basic information about asteroid rotation rates and related information that can be used in statistical studies involving a few or many parameters. Some of the data are obtained directly from the observations while other data are inferred or calculated based on orbital characteristics, assumed class, etc.
