Abstract: NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) mission mapped the sky at four Infrared wavelengths in 2010 and 2011, producing a number of image and extracted source data products. The latter include data tables ranging in size from a few hundred million rows, to an estimated 30 billion rows in a single wide table. NASA's Infrared Science Archive (IRSA) is responsible to make these products available to the community through its general catalog search facility. Due to the extreme size of the largest of these products, and the desire for full relational query support using them, a variety of techniques are being applied in the implementation of these services.
