Astro2020 APC White Paper: Durable Agency Support for Exoplanet Catalogs and Archives


Many projects in current exoplanet science make use of catalogs of known exoplanets and their host stars. These may be used for demographic, population, and statistical studies, or for identifying targets for future observations. The ability to efficiently and accurately conduct exoplanet science depends on the completeness, accuracy, and access to these catalogs. In this white paper, we argue that long-term agency support and maintenance of exoplanet archives is of crucial importance to achieving the scientific goals of the community and the strategic goals of the funding agencies. As such, it is imperative that these facilities are appropriately supported and maintained by the national funding agencies.
