Aims. We evaluate the prospects of performing automatic taxonomic classification of asteroids in a proposed broad and medium band photometric system of Gaia . Methods. The study is based on asteroid colors from the Eight-Color Asteroid Survey (ECAS) and CCD spectra from the Small Mainbelt Asteroid Spectral Survey II (SMASSII). The success of the Gaia photometric systems for taxonomic classification is evaluated using supervised classification techniques and mean taxonomic class spectra in the… CONTINUE READING
