P1.3 AstroCloud, a Cyber-Infrastructure for Astronomy Research: Data Access and Interoperability

Dongwei Fan (National Astronomical Observatories, CAS)

Data access and interoperability module connects the observation proposals, data, virtual machines and software. According to the unique identifier of PI (principal investigator), an email address or an internal ID, data can be collected by PI’s proposals, or by the search interfaces, e.g. cone search. Files associated with the searched results could be easily transported to cloud storages, including the storage with virtual machines, or several commercial platforms like Dropbox. Benefitted from the standards of IVOA (International Observatories Alliance), VOTable formatted searching result could be sent to kinds of VO software. Latter endeavor will try to integrate more data and connect archives and some other astronomical resources.
