SNRcat is the online high-energy catalogue of supernova remnants (SNRs) and Pulsar Wind Nebulae (PWNe), hosted in the Dept of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manitoba.

It compiles observations of SNRs located within our Milky Way Galaxy, aiming to be a complete and up-to-date database.

The data and images are available for download.
