Lasair and Jupyter

Below are some Jupyter notebooks that use the ZTF candidate catalog. If you have a login, use the server that can connect to the ZTF database at https://jupyter.lsst.ac.uk. Logging in is via a user's institutional credentials, rather than having to remember yet another username/password combination. Access is on a limited basis, since Lasair is a technology prototype, not a production system; to make a request, follow the procedure listed here to get an account, then write to lasair-help@lists.roe.ac.uk saying what you would like to do with the Jupyter access to Lasair.

There are a few notebooks listed below. These and many others can be downloaded with the command
  git clone https://github.com/lsst-uk/jupyter_notebooks
