Publishing data with DALToolKit (images, spectra, catalogues)


The scope of this hands on session is to ingest and publish spectra/images according to the SSAP/SIAP standards. Final users will be able to locally create their own database, ingest test FITS files and publish them making use of the software and support we will provide. At the end of the day people who wish to work with their own data will be able to perform the necessary tasks to achieve such result. The session aims to support either people with few spectra/images who plan to create personal services and data center with large amount of data. The session is divided in two parts. The first one consist of the database creation and data ingestion; it will be done using the MEx software from ESO. The second one consist of the server building and service publishing; it will be done using the DALToolKit software from ESA.

The first part of the hands on session is described on the MEx TWiki page here : DcaJune2008ESOMEx
