Abstract: A Web service for extracting multi-band science grade image cutouts from the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey (NDWFS) is described. The NDWFS data is stored as a multi-band database of large images on the NDWFS archive server. Given a cutout center and size the NDWFS image cutout service creates cutout images on-the-fly. The service provides high performance access to the survey data and isolates the client from the details of how the survey data is stored in the archive.
