The Lunar Orbiter Photographic Atlas of the Moon is a reference manual to the global photographic coverage of the Moon. Images contained within the atlas can be used for studying lunar morphology. The digital atlas is a reproduction of the 675 plates contained in “Lunar Orbiter Photographic Atlas of the Moon” by Bowker and Hughes. Surface feature information has been updated and improved and companion images containing feature annotations have been included.
NED is a comprehensive database of multiwavelength data for extragalactic objects, providing a systematic, ongoing fusion of information integrated from hundreds of large sky surveys and tens of thousands of research publications. The contents and services span the entire observed spectrum from gamma rays through radio frequencies. As new observations are published, they are cross- identified or statistically associated with previous data and integrated into a unified database to simplify queries and retrieval. Seamless connectivity is also provided to data in NASA astrophysics mission archives (IRSA, HEASARC, MAST), to the astrophysics literature via ADS, and to other data centers around the world.
The HEASARC is a multi-mission astronomy archive for the EUV, X-ray, and Gamma ray wave bands. Because EUV, X and Gamma rays cannot reach the Earth's surface it is necessary to place the telescopes and sensors on spacecraft. The HEASARC now holds the data from 25 observatories covering over 30 years of X-ray, extreme-ultraviolet and gamma-ray astronomy. Data and software from many of the older missions were restored by the HEASARC staff. Examples of these archived missions include ASCA, BeppoSAX, Chandra, Compton GRO, HEAO 1, Einstein Observatory (HEAO 2), EUVE, EXOSAT, HETE-2, INTEGRAL, ROSAT, Rossi XTE, Suzaku, Swift, and XMM-Newton.
The primary function of this database is to provide authoritative information about meteorite names. The correct spelling, complete with punctuation and diacritical marks, of all known meteorites recognized by the Meteoritical Society may be found in this compilation. Official abbreviations for many meteorites are documented here as well. The database also contains status information for meteorites with provisional names, and listings for specimens of doubtful origin and pseudometeorites. A seconday purpose of this database is to provide an interface to map services for the display of geographic information about meteorites. Two are currently implemented here. If the user has installed the free NASA program World Wind, links are provided for each meteorite to zoom the program to the find location. The database also provides links to the Google Maps service for the display of find locations.
HyperLeda is an information system for astronomy: It consists in a database and tools to process that data according to the user's requirements. The scientific goal which motivates the development of HyperLeda is the study of the physics and evolution of galaxies. LEDA was created more than 20 years ago, in 1983, and became HyperLeda after the merging with Hypercat in 2000
This MultiDark application is now integrated into CosmoSim (, all data and much more is available there. The old MultiDark server is no longer available. The MultiDark database provides results from cosmological simulations performed within the MultiDark project. This database can be queried by entering SQL statements directly into the Query Form. The access to that form and thus access to the public & private databases is password protected.
>>> --- !!!! Attention: Obviously the institute does not exist any more. The links do not work anymore. !!!! --- <<< Our center is devoted to: Collection, compilation, evaluation, and dissemination of scientific information required for fusion research, and Investigation of problems arising in the course of development of fusion research. There are atomic and molecular (A & M) numerical databases and bibliographic databases on plasma physics and atomic physics.
The US Virtual Astronomical Observatory (VAO) is the VO effort based in the US, and it is one of many VO projects currently underway worldwide. The primary emphasis of the VAO is to provide new scientific research capabilities to the astronomy community. Thus an essential component of the VAO activity is obtaining input from US astronomers about the research tools that are most urgently needed in their work, and this information will guide the development efforts of the VAO. >>>!!!<<< Funding discontinued in 2014 and all software, documentation, and other digital assets developed under the VAO are stored in the VAO Project Repository . Code is archived on Github . >>>!!!<<<
The Keck Observatory Archive (KOA)is a collaboration between the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute (NExScI) and the W. M. Keck Observatory (WMKO). This collaboration is founded by the NASA. KOA has been archiving data from the High Resolution Echelle Spectrograph (HIRES) since August 2004 and data acquired with the Near InfraRed echelle SPECtrograph (NIRSPEC) since May 2010. The archived data extend back to 1994 for HIRES and 1999 for NIRSPEC. The W. M. Keck Observatory Archive (KOA) ingests and curates data from the following instruments: DEIMOS, ESI, HIRES, KI, LRIS, MOSFIRE, NIRC2, and NIRSPEC.
The ESO/ST-ECF science archive is a joint collaboration of the European Organisation for Astronomical Research in the Southern Hemisphere (ESO) and the Space Telescope - European Coordinating Facility (ST-ECF). ESO observational data can be requested after the proprietary period by the astronomical community.
The GAVO data center at Zentrum für Astronomie Heidelberg provides VO publication services to all interested parties on behalf of the German Astrophysical Virtual Observatory. It's a A growing collection of data and services.
Paris Astronomical Data Centre aims at providing VO access to its database resources, at participating to international standards developments, at implementing VO compliant simulation codes, data visualization and analysis softwares. This centre hosts high level permanent activities for tools and data distribution under the format of reference services. These sustainable services are recognized at the national level as CNRS labeled services. The various activities are organised as portals whose functions are to provide visibility and information on the projects and to encourage collaboration.
The IERS provides data on Earth orientation, on the International Celestial Reference System/Frame, on the International Terrestrial Reference System/Frame, and on geophysical fluids. It maintains also Conventions containing models, constants and standards.
The "Subaru Observatory Project" was originally planned for producing very important output to astronomical society by systematic time allocation and using characteristic functions of Subaru Telescope. The observation time for this project consists of guaranteed time both for telescope builders and for people responsible for telescope operation. 3 proposals were selected for execution during 2002 and 2003 fiscal years. They are Subaru Deep Field (SDF) (PI is Dr. Kashikawa at Mitaka, NAOJ), Subaru XMM-Newton Deep Survey (SXDS) (PI is Dr. Sekiguchi at Hilo, Subaru Telescope), and Disk and Planet Searches (SDPS) (PI is Dr. Hayashi at Hilo, Subaru Telescope). SOAPs web server provide the data (fully reduced images and catalogs) download obtained from SDF and SXDS projects. Raw Data are available at the SMOKA Science Archive:
<<<!!!>>> NVO - National Virtual Observatory is closed now <<<!!! >>> The National Virtual Observatory (NVO) was the predecessor of the VAO. It was a research project aimed at developing the technologies that would be used to build an operational Virtual Observatory. With the NVO era now over, a new organization has been funded in its place, with the explicit goal of creating useful tools for users to take advantage of the groundwork laid by the NVO. To carry on with the NVO's goals, we hereby introduce you to the Virtual Astronomical Observatory
The Australian National University undertake work to collect and publish metadata about research data held by ANU, and in the case of four discipline areas, Earth Sciences, Astronomy, Phenomics and Digital Humanities to develop pipelines and tools to enable the publication of research data using a common and repeatable approach. Aims and outcomes: To identify and describe research data held at ANU, to develop a consistent approach to the publication of metadata on the University's data holdings: Identification and curation of significant orphan data sets that might otherwise be lost or inadvertently destroyed, to develop a culture of data data sharing and data re-use.
