“Carte du Ciel” Catalogs and Their Importance for Modern Astrometry

  • V. N. SementsovEmail author


Astronomical catalogs created as a result of the “Carte du Ciel” project are considered, including the work of K.V. Kuimov in this area, its methodological importance, and perspectives in the GAIA era. This paper is based on a presentation made at the conference “Modern Astrometry 2017,” dedicated to the memory of K.V. Kuimov (Sternberg Astronomical Institute, Moscow State University, October 23–25, 2017).
