10.3 General classification

10.3.2 Properties of the input data

The input data consisted of pre-processed and cleaned photometric time series in the G, GBP, and GRP bands (see Section 10.2.3) that had at least five FoV transits in the G band and were selected by the General Variability Detection work package (see Section 10.2.3). Additional information on GBP and GRP spectral shape components (Section 5.1.1) was available to better characterize specific classes. General time series statistics and period search results, pre-computed in preceding stages as described in Sections 10.2.3 and 10.2.3, provided further classification attributes. Astrometric parameters were also employed in both training and validation stages.
