EDMOND

The European viDeo MeteOr Network Database (EDMOND) is a database of video meteor orbits and it has been created from initiative of Jakub Koukal and Roman Piffl (CEMeNt). The cooperation and data sharing among several European national networks and the International Meteor Organization Video Meteor Network, IMO VMN ( Kornoš et al. 2014) has resulted to the current 4th version of the EDMOND database, which contains 83 369 video meteor orbits. Thanks to the broad international cooperation of video meteor observers from several European countries, a multi-national network EDMONd (European viDeoMeteor Observation Network) was created. As a result of its work, the first version of the EDMOND database, containing data from the years 2009, 2010, 2011 and half of 2012, was presented at the IMC conference in La Palma, Spain in 2012 ( Kornoš et al., 2013). In the last year, observers affiliated to the International Meteor Organization Video Meteor Network (IMO VMN) have started to share their data, whereas the data of EDMONd and IMO VMN have been merged. Nowadays, the data is collected from observers from a substantial part of Europe and, due to this international cooperation, meteor activity is monitored over almost the entire Europe. In effect, the database has accumulated 1 639 358 records of single-station meteors between 2000 and 2013 (EDMONd – 447 266 and IMO VMN – 1 192 092).
