Abstract: The Data Handling System (DHS), developed for the Gemini project by the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre, accepts observational data from multiple source s. There may be data descriptions, image data in chunks (to be composed into a single image), and multiple images for one dataset, all being received at diffe rent times. All information for a single dataset is written to one Flexible Image Transport System (FITS) file. The methods developed for handling and assembling data chunks are presented.
