We report here in electronic format the results of the 1st Fermi LAT Supernova Remnant Catalog, which systematically surveyed the GeV emission in 279 regions containing supernova remnants (SNRs).
Of the >100 candidates found, 30 were classified as likely GeV SNRs, with an additional 14 having marginal spatial overlap. Of the classified candidates, 4 extended and 10 consistent with a point source are newly published in this catalog. We also present flux upper limits at the location of known SNRs for the 245 regions where the spatial overlap was marginally or less consistent.
We include both statistical and systematic errors on spatial and spectral properties. We derive the systematic errors from the uncertainty in the effective area calculation and from the choice of interstellar emission model (IEM). The latter was determined using a new method developed for this catalog employing alternative IEMs.
The 1st Fermi LAT Supernova Remnant Catalog contains a full explanation of the catalog, including its construction, methods for region modeling and source determination, and a discussion of the findings in a multiwavelength context.
The 1st Fermi LAT Supernova Remnant Catalog is available as a FITS file and in ascii format. Supporting files and documentation have been provided and are linked below.
It is important that all users of this catalog review the caveats listed in the paper. These describe the content of the catalog at a high level, as well as some cautions for the user.
Again, for more information about the catalog see the 1st Fermi LAT Supernova Remnant Catalog paper. Feedback about the catalog and paper should be directed to the paper's contact authors. All changes to the catalog files will be documented in the change log below.
