The VizieR database of astronomical catalogues

  title={The VizieR database of astronomical catalogues},
  author={Françoise Ochsenbein and Patricia Bauer and J. Marcout},
  journal={Astronomy \& Astrophysics Supplement Series},
VizieR is a database grouping in an homoge- neous way thousands of astronomical catalogues gath- ered for decades by the Centre de Donn ees de Strasbourg (CDS) and participating institutes. The history and cur- rent status of this large collection is briefly presented, and the way these catalogues are being standardized to t in the VizieR system is described. The architecture of the database is then presented, with emphasis on the man- agement of links and of accesses to very large catalogues… Expand

The next frontiers for CDS are the new Web 2.0/3.0 paradigm and, at a more general level, global interoperability of astronomical on-line resources in the Virtual Observatory framework. Expand
Big Astronomical Datasets and Discovery of New Celestial Bodies in the Solar System in Automated Mode by the CoLiTec Software
The main goal of this can be achieved using the Data Mining approach, which is provided by the CoLiTec software that allows processing of input data sets or streams in real time. Expand
From your Paper to VizieR and SIMBAD
Scientific results strongly rely on previous studies, experiments, and observations. A huge quantity of data is produced by astronomers and needs to be available to the whole community. To supportExpand
Information integration and retrieval: the CDS hub
The Centre de Donnees astronomiques de Strasbourg develops a set of value-added services, widely used for information retrieval, observation preparation, data interpretation, etc, which integrate heterogeneous selected information from observatory archives, sky surveys and publications. Expand
VizieR catalogue system certified by the Data Seal of Approval
Astronomy is a fertile environment with collaborations leading to the elaboration of disciplinary standards. Deploying standards in data centers can be beneficial for long term preservation and itExpand
Bibliography, catalogs, pixel data: Management of heterogeneous Big Data at CDS by the documentalists
High speed Internet and the evolution of data storage space in terms of cost-effectiveness has changed the way data are managed today. Large amounts of heterogeneous data can now be visualized easilyExpand
Safeguarding Old and New Journal Tables for the VO: Status for Extragalactic and Radio Data
The current efforts within the Virtual Observatory project, to provide retrieval and analysis tools for different types of published and archival data stored at various sites, should be balanced by an equal effort to recover and include large amounts of published data not currently available in this way.

The algorithm designed to efficient coordinate cross-match of objects in the modern massive astronomical catalogues using the multithreading of the modern computing processors allows speeding up the program up to read-write data to the storage. Expand
Associated data: Indexation, discovery, challenges and roles
Astronomers are nowadays required by their funding agencies to make the data obtained through public-financed means (ground and space observatories and labs) available to the public and the communityExpand
An Efficient Retrieval Method for Astronomical Catalog Time Series Data
An automatic and efficient retrieval method for astronomical catalog time series data is proposed, which labeled a unique MatchID for each record matched with the datum catalog and an in-memory index structure based on Redis is specially designed, which enables matching speed 1.67 times faster than that of MySQL in massive amounts of data.

The VizieR System for Accessing Astronomical Data
The recently reshaped VizieR system, a unified query interface to an increasing number of catalogs (presently ∼ 1500), is presented. 1. Historical Background VizieR was first presented at the AASExpand
Data in astronomy
This unique handbook explains how astronomical data of all kinds should be obtained, compiled, and published if it is to be used to the best advantage by professional astronomers worldwide. Expand
Development of the astronomical image archive and catalog database for production of GSC-II
