Publishing catalogues with DMMapper

Abstract

The purpose of this hands on session is to ingest and publish a catalogue in the VO. The first objective is to allow a client to query a catalogue using the ADQL language, including the REGION search. Then, try to map the catalogue to the Source Catalogue DM, allowing clients to send uniform queries across different services. The client used to demonstrate this is VOQuest, and the server package is the DMMapper. The session will first be run using the 1XMM source catalogue, and then using the participants data.

To start the hands on session, please open the following PDF file and follow the instructions provided : HandsOnSession-DMMapper.pdf
