Paper Abstract

The Virtual Solar Observatory (VSO) is a bottom-up grassroots approach to the development of a distributed data system for use by the solar physics community. The beta testing version of the VSO was released in December 2003. Since then it has been tested by approximately 50 solar physicists. In this paper we will present the status of the project, a summary of the community's experience with the tool, and an overview of the lessons learned.
