Abstract: NOAO is in the process of creating an archive for ground-based optical and infrared data. Initially this will be populated with data from the NOAO Surveys program which consists mainly of multiband wide-field imaging data and associated object catalogs. As part of this effort we are developing a number of Web services for interacting with and accessing these survey data products. Our motivation is not only to provide useful tools in the near term for accessing survey data, but also to explore the technology available for constructing Web services for science data access, and to aid in planning the full NOAO archive facility.
