||LBT Distributed Archive: Status and Features
||442, Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems XX (ADASSXX)
||Knapic, C.; Smareglia, R.; Thompson, D.; Grede, G.
||After the first release of the LBT Distributed Archive, this
successful collaboration is continuing within the LBT
(Italian Center for Astronomical Archive) team had updated the LBT DA
with new features in order to facilitate user data retrieval while
abiding by VO standards.
To facilitate the integration of data from any new instruments,
we have migrated to a new database, developed
new data distribution software,
and enhanced features in the LBT User Interface.
The DBMS engine has been changed to
MySQL. Consequently, the data handling software now uses java thread
technology to update and synchronize the main storage archives on
Mt. Graham and in Tucson, as well as archives in Trieste and
Heidelberg, with all metadata and proprietary data. The LBT UI has
been updated with additional features allowing users to search by
instrument and some of the more important characteristics of the
images. Finally, instead of a simple cone search service
over all LBT image data, new instrument specific SIAP and cone search services
have been developed.
They will be published in the IVOA framework later this fall.
