Paper Abstract

Data Central is the AAO's flagship virtual observatory service, providing a central repository for Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) and UK Schmidt observations, survey-team derived data products and documentation. The system brings together catalogues, imaging, spectra and data cubes from dozens of surveys, providing an intuitive interface to query, explore and cross-match data sets of national and international significance. In this presentation, we brie y introduce the current services Data Central offers including: a publication-quality image cutout service, SQL query, a Single Object Viewer bringing together data products (IFS cubes, spectra, catalogues, photometry) from crossmatched sources across multiple surveys, VO services, schema browser and team-curated documentation via an in-house CMS.
