Details on Acronym: NVGRC
NVGRC (NVSS Giant galaxy (radio) source or giant Radio Galaxy Candidate) (Not yet in Simbad) Write:<<NVGRC JHHMMSS.s+DDMMSS>> N: 1385 (SIMBAD class: RadioG = Radio Galaxy) Note:Pattern Recognition techniques have been applied to the NVSS (NRAO VLA Sky Survey) catalog to identify Giant Radio Sources (large angular size sources) and candidate Giant Radio Galaxies. The catalog is a catalog of components. It would be useful to have identifications of Radio Galaxies, in particular Giant Radio Galaxies. Identification of Giant Radio Sources is a first step in identifying Giant Radio Galaxies (large physical size sources).
