Abstract: One of the most important aspects of the new GRID and virtual observatory initiatives is the production of reliably calibrated data from telescope archives. The archive for the Submillimeter Common-User Bolometer Array (SCUBA) on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope is small enough (about 100 GB) to allow it to be on-line and for it to be processed in a reasonable amount of time. This makes it possible to address the important issues of calibration and source identification in a dataset that is tractable with reasonable computer hardware. This paper will focus on the JAC's and CADC's experience of automating the processing of SCUBA data, the difficulties and the successes, culminating in the ability of the SCUBA archive at the CADC to serve reduced images on demand.
