value [nspid]SExtractorInputParams WSA NonSurvey Value of the input parameter varchar 256   NONE

variableClass [nspid]Variability WSA NonSurvey Classification of objects across all bands. int 4   -99999999  
This gives an overall classification. Currently the weighted intrinsicRMS/expectedRMS (wsrms) is calculated across all bands, where the weighting is directly proportional to the number of good observations in each band, where any bands with <5 observations have w=0 and the band with the most observations has a weighting of 1. If wsrms>3, then variableClass=1 (i.e. the source is variable), else variableClass=0. In the future, the classification will take into account other statistics, such as correlations between bands and will also include motion and skew, and will not be limited to 0 or 1.

versionNum [nspid]Multiframe WSA NonSurvey a version number for this frame (if available) real 4   -0.9999995e9 meta.id
For deep stacks and mosaics produced in Edinburgh, (frameType=deep%stack, fileName=eYYYYMMDD_%) this refers to the database release number. For all other files, the versNum refers to the CASU pipeline version number.
