Paper Abstract

The Pi of the Sky experiment searches for fast optical transients in the sky. Its data is stored in huge databases, which contain mainly astrophysical objects' data and measurement of their brightness over time. This paper describes an application that was designed to make analysis of this data more effective. User requirements and solution based on them will be presented. The main idea of this solution is based on creating forms describing database queries in XML files. Such approach guarantees that changing existing forms and creating new ones is a simple task.
