Publishing Data into the VO

IVOA Architecture

The IVOA Architecture Note (23 Nov 2010) can be a good starting point to explore the list of IVOA Standards, their function and the relationships between them.

Workshops and other links about Publishing Data into the VO

Euro-VO DCA and then Euro-VO AIDA used to run workshops oriented towards Data Providers to help them publishing their data into the VO. The latest one took place at ESAC in June 2009 and one can find all information at the following link. It included hands on tutorial on DALToolkit, SAADA and DSA. Previous similar workshop was run in 2008.

Euro-VO has a web page to some further useful links about how to publish data into the VO.

Data VO Publishing Tools

Name Author Short Description
SAADA Laurent Michel Saada builds databases from data files: no code to write - heterogeneous dataset storage - can host multiple data collections - support persistent links between data - metadata tagging - access by Web interface, VO protocols or API.
DALServer USVAO The DALServer framework is intended to provide support for all VO data services within a common, easily user configurable or extensible framework implemented in Java. This project is currently in the process of being moved to VAO; the current version is an older one from NVO.
DALToolkit ESA-VO  
DSA AstroGrid Layer on top of existing database providing Cone Search, (proto) TAP, and other capabilities, including IVOA Single Sign On authentication. However, TAP implementation is out of date, and software is no longer maintained.
DaCHS GAVO The Data Center Helper Suite is intended as an all-round data center software, including data ingestion (from, e.g., FITS, text files, binary data), unified metadata handling (including an OAI-PMH registry interface), and multi-protocol publication (including TAP, SCS, SIAP, SSAP, and web interfaces)
OpenCADC Patrick Dowler CADC Open source software (Java, Python) repository for implementing IVOA standards: UWS, TAP, TAPRegExt, CDP, VOSpace2, VOSI. The repository also includes test code to test conformance of a service with the specification; these are generally designed to be used as unit or integration tests.
