AAVSO Validation Project

Data Validation

The AAVSO Data Validation Project was a two-year project begun in 2002 where AAVSO staff examine every visual observation in the AAVSO International Database made between 1911 and 2001.  This project has been completed, and all AAVSO Light Curves are now available directly via the AAVSO Website.  A summary of the Validation Project was published by Malatesta et al. in the Journal of the AAVSO, volume 34 (2006).
