Abstract: The famous Markarian Survey (or the First Byurakan Survey, FBS) was carried out in 1965–1980. Its 2000 plates were digitized in 2002–2007 and the Digitized FBS (DFBS) was created. New science projects have been conducted based on this low-dispersion spectroscopic material. The Armenian Virtual Observatory (ArVO) database accommodates all new data. The project was conducted in collaboration with the Italian, American, and German scientists, as well as the Armenian Institute of Informatics and Automation Problems (IIAP), and continued during 6 years in 2002–2007.
