ready IVOA Photometry Data Model

Abbreviation: PhotDM

General Information
The Photometry Data Model (PhotDM) standard describes photometry filters, photometric systems, magnitude systems, zero points and its interrelation with the other IVOA data models through a simple data model. Particular attention is given necessarily to optical photometry where specifications of magnitude systems and photometric zero points are required to convert photometric measurements into physical flux density units.
