NED service to retrieve Cross-IDs for a named object: The NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED) provides a comprehensive fusion of multi-wavelength data for hundreds of millions of objects located beyond the Milky Way galaxy. This service retrieves the names of sources which have been cross-identified with the named object. NED is built around a master list of extragalactic objects, for which multi-wavelength cross-identifications have been established. Cross-identifications are based on a statistical, rule-based cross-matching algorithm that matches names, positions, redshifts, and other relevant data to objects already in NED. These matches are also vetted by human experts on the NED staff.
