Bonner Durchmusterung (Argelander 1859-1862): Documentation for the machine-readable versionThe machine-readable version of the catalog, as it is currently being distributed from the Astronomical Data Center, is described. The entire Bonner Durchmusterung (BD) was computerized through the collaborative efforts of the Centre de Donnees Astronomiques de Strasbourg, l'Observatoire de Nice, and the Astronomical Data Center at the NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center. All corrigenda published in the original BD volumes were incorporated into the machine file, along with changes published following the 1903 edition. In addition, stars indicated to be missing in published lists and verified by various techniques are flagged so that they can be omitted from computer plotted charts if desired. Stars deleted in the various errata lists were similarly flagged, while those with revised data are flagged and listed in a separate table.
