This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018) Abstract Exoplanet science often involves using the system parameters of real exoplanets for tasks such as simulations, fitting routines, and target selection for proposals. Several exoplanet catalogues are already well established but often lack a version history and code friendly interfaces. Software that bridges the barrier between the catalogues and code enables users to improve the specific repeatability of results by facilitating the retrieval of exact system parameters used in articles results ... Title of program: ExoData Catalogue Id: AFAL_v1_0 Nature of problem Being able to use exoplanet catalogue values in code including where there may be incomplete and incorrectly formatted values. Also being able to use the whole catalogue data at once, both for user querying, visualisation and in large simulation programs. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AFAL_v1_0; ExoData; 10.1016/j.cpc.2016.05.009
