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.

GloPAD (Global Performing Arts Database) records include authoritative, detailed, multilingual descriptions of digital images, texts, video clips, sound recordings, and complex media objects related to the performing arts around the world, plus information about related pieces, productions, performers, and creators. GloPAC is an international organization of institutions and individuals committed to using innovative digital technologies to create easily accessible, multimedia, and multilingual information resources for the study and preservation of the performing arts.
SIMBAD astronomical database is the world reference database for the identification of astronomical objects and provides basic data, cross-identifications, bibliography and measurements for astronomical objects outside the solar system. Using VizieR, the catalogue service for the CDS reference collection of astronomical catalogues and tables published in academic journals and the Aladin interactive software sky atlas for access, visualization and analysis of astronomical images, surveys, catalogues, databases and related data. Simbad bibliographic survey began in 1950 for stars (at least bright stars) and in 1983 for all other objects (outside the solar system)
Phaidra (Permanent Hosting, Archiving and Indexing of Digital Resources and Assets) is the University of Padova Library System’s platform for long-term archiving of digital collections. Phaidra hosts various types of digital object (antiquarian books, manuscripts, photographs, wallcharts, maps, learning objects, films, archive material and museum objects). Phaidra offers a search facility to identify specific objects, and each object can be viewed, downloaded, used and reused to the extent permitted by law and by its associated licences. The objects in the digital collections on the Phaidra platform are sourced from libraries (in large part due to the digitisation projects promoted by the Library System itself), museums and archives at the University of Padova and other institutions, including the Ca’ Foscari University and the Università Iuav in Venice.
Arachne is the central object-database of the German Archaeological Institute (DAI). In 2004 the DAI and the Research Archive for Ancient Sculpture at the University of Cologne (FA) joined the effort to support Arachne as a tool for free internet-based research. Arachne's database design uses a model that builds on one of the most basic assumptions one can make about archaeology, classical archaeology or art history: all activities in these areas can most generally be described as contextualizing objects. Arachne tries to avoid the basic mistakes of earlier databases, which limited their object modeling to specific project-oriented aspects, thus creating separated containers of only a small number of objects. All objects inside Arachne share a general part of their object model, to which a more class-specific part is added that describes the specialised properties of a category of material like architecture or topography. Seen on the level of the general part, a powerful pool of material can be used for general information retrieval, whereas on the level of categories and properties, very specific structures can be displayed.
The MPC is responsible for the designation of minor bodies in the solar system: minor planets; comets, in conjunction with the Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams (CBAT); and natural satellites (also in conjunction with CBAT). The MPC is also responsible for the efficient collection, computation, checking and dissemination of astrometric observations and orbits for minor planets and comets
In the Hellenistic and Roman period, many buildings and material objects were constructed using structural geometrical specifications. Ancient sundials were built using basic geometrical forms of very few construction types taking also into account the astronomical dimensions. In architectural drawings, comparable proportions can be found. The tower of the winds merges all these geometrical principles of construction. The construction drawings of this collection comprise geometrical drafts used for the construction of buildings. They differ from simple geometrical forms in that they present the general layout of the lines indicating objects and geometrical areas. Their geometrical dimensions are constructed according to the principles of proportional relations and were implemented in – sometimes very complex – work processes in which artefacts of the original objects were constructed. Construction drawings from the pillars of Didyma, which were discovered by Lothar Haselberger, serve as a paradigmatic model for these architectural drawings.
Phaidra Universität Wien, is the innovative whole-university digital asset management system with long-term archiving functions, offers the possibility to archive valuable data university-wide with permanent security and systematic input, offering multilingual access using metadata (data about data), thus providing worldwide availability around the clock. As a constant data pool for administration, research and teaching, resources can be used flexibly, where continual citability allows the exact location and retrieval of prepared digital objects.
Phaidra is the Institutional Repository and Digital Asset Management System of the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences. The researchers and students at the University can use it to secure and archive their digital objects such as data, Open Access Publications and dissertations long-term as well as make them widely available to the public. Phaidra provides access to the objects using metadata in English and German. The Repository plays an important part in knowledge transfer in Austria and worldwide.
This site offers an enormous collection of photographs of wild species and natural history objects. It covers most groups of organisms with the exception of birds and other vertebrates. The photographs are presented to illustrate biodiversity and as an aid to identification. The criterion for inclusion of a species is that it must have been, or might be expected to be, found in Britain or Ireland. BioImages follows the biological classification. Biota is a hierarchical system with species grouped in genera, genera in families, families in orders and so on up to kingdoms and superkingdoms. The datasets are linked to bioinfo: food webs and species interactions in the Biodiversity of UK and Ireland.
The small digitized archive comprises drawings and photos made by Hans J. Nissen, many of which were not included in the book, The Uruk Countryside. Most of the material consists of pottery, but other ceramic artifacts, stone and metal objects as well as inscribed bricks were also documented. All materials were recorded in the field. The goal of this website is to provide online access to this remaining archival documentation of the Uruk-Warka survey.
The Babylonian astronomical diaries comprise a group of cuneiform texts which record natural events in time spans from months to a whole year
Volare is the repository of the Vorarlberger Landesbibliothek (Vorarlberg State Library). Digital Objects are made end-user-friendly available and they are secured in a long term. Pupils, students, patrimonial researchers but also the general public can use the imagery for various purposes. Volare facilitates access to regional, social and cultural history research. Volare encourages those who rediscover their native place or their holiday desination or just generally want to browse in the past.
Published data is based on the drawings from three books published by Wäfler and Marschall. Rock paintings in Indonesia were recorded during three short excursions by Markus Wäfler and Wolfgang Marschall. Threatened by environmental changes and human interventions and activities, these rock paintings represent the latest specimen of early drawings in that region.
Collection of maps showing reconstructions of routes and paths through Rome described in Renaissance guidebooks and antiquarian literature.
The architecture of the Myus Temple (Ionian coast) is preserved only in a few very fragmented parts. These components, currently housed in the Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin - Antikensammlung, were digitalized and will be used in the reconstruction of a column from a temple likely dedicated to Dionysos.

The repository contains the complete model of the Bern campaign; only the upper part of the vault could not be measured due to renovation works carried out on the dome at the time of the campaign.
The research data of the last 6000 years were produced using global and regional climate simulations. Climate models of the present and future climate are applied as background for the simulations. The global climate was simulated in a high spatial resolution by using the so-called time slice approach for chosen periods in the past 6000 years.
