Effect of different ecliptic latitude cuts on NEOCP submissions

A plot from Too much of a good thing? Rapid NEO Follow-up strategies in the Era of LSST

This is an interactive version of Figure 8 from Wagg+2023. It demonstrates how varying the minimum absolute ecliptic latitude can affect the nightly traffic and purity of the Near-Earth Object Confirmation Page from objects with a digest2 of at least 65 and an apparent magnitude of at most 22. This will be an essential tool for differentiating between Near-Earth Objects and Main Belt Asteroids during follow-up in the early years of LSST.

Try hovering on different locations of the plot to see how different ecliptic latitude cuts will change which objects you'll find on the NEOCP!
