JSON Implementation of Time-Frequency Radio Catalogues: TFCat

Sunday 7 November 2021, by Baptiste Cecconi

TFCat (Time-Frequency Catalogue) is a data interchange format based on JSON. It defines several types of JSON objects and the manner in which they are combined to represent data about time-frequency features of a time spectrogram (a.k.a. dynamic spectrum), their properties, and their temporal and spectral extents.
