Abstract: 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 (ISS). The main purpose of the MAXI is to discover and promptly report X-ray transients as well as steady monitoring of known X-ray sources in the whole sky. The MAXI operation is approved at least until the end of March 2015. We are working on public data release of the MAXI, in order to enhance use of the MAXI data by scientists all over the world. On-demand data analysis system using a web-interface has started since November 2011. Now we are working toward permanent public MAXI data archive including MAXI specific software for scientific analysis.
