The Virtual Observatory Data eXchange format will define a data model-based data exchange mechanism which will make automated workflows possible.

The main goals of this enterprise are:

  • to define a semantically rich data exchange mechanism
  • to ensure transmitted data retains the semantic meaning of its source
  • to enable data extracts to be combined, analysed and manipulated without human intervention
  • to provide a mechanism for applications to exchange meaningful data

A key requirement of VODaX is that there should exist a XML Schema-based implementation of the IVOA Data Model: a parallel effort (VODMX) will address this requirement. The key starting point is to implement an exchange format for the catalogue data model.

This page will contain links to Notes and proposed standards related to VODaX.
