I've enoucntered many acronyms related between them, like AllWISE, WISE, NEOWISE, CatWISE, WISEA, WISEAR, WISEAF, WISEU, WISEP, WISEPA, WISEPC, WISEF, WISEPF, WISER, WISEWF, WISET, WISETF, WISENF... but I would like to understand the differences and what they refer to.

Here is my attempt (I would appreciate any corrections).

But what about WISEA, WISEU, WISEAR and others? And why the IDs of the objects change from catalog to catalog!? I'm so confused right now.

    $\begingroup$ I am not wise when it comes to WISE, but as far as Stack Exchange is considered, this might work better if you ask a short question, then start a Community Wiki answer and put all those definitions in the answer where everyone can edit and improve them. They are answer-like in nature and this better fits the way SE works. $\endgroup$
