Abstract: The Data Handling System for the Gemini 8m telescopes provides the data handling infrastructure for the Observatory Control System and the instrument control systems. Its primary functions, which are all related to processing and analyzing instrument data, are: 1) to provide an interface between the OCS, instruments and the quick-look subsystem; 2) to provide a common, efficient data buffering, archival storage, and retrieval subsystem that is shared by all instruments and the quick-look subsystem; 3) to provide an interface to the data processing system for synchronous and on-line data processing.
