The Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image (MAXI) was launched on July 2009. It was equipped on the exposed facility of the Japanese experiment module "Kibo" on-board the international space station. The main purpose of the MAXI is a discovery and a prompt report of new X-ray variable objects as well as steady monitoring of known X-ray sources in the whole sky. The MAXI will be operated until the end of March 2015.

We are working on data release of the MAXI, in order to enhance the use of the MAXI data by scientists in the world. Following on-demand data release using a web interface started on November 2011, we are working on developments of permanent MAXI data archives as well as software for creating archive data and scientific analyses.
