Paper Abstract

Using the WWW, direct query-access has ben made to the Hubble Space Telescope Calibration Database. All eight science instruments' reference data, plus photometric and spectrophotometric standards can be seen. By using wildcards, a user may retrieve information on all reference datasets or by using various qualifiers, the user has the ability to narrow the search down to very particular sets. The information retrieved not only lists the existence of filenames for particular modes of operation, but critical information about when the reference data has been archived and when it has been installed for pipeline calibrations.
