    • Description:

      The IACOB project is an ambitious long-term project which is contributing to the modern era of investigation of massive stars by concentrating in Galactic OB stars. In particular, the project aims at building a larga database of high-resolution, multi-epoch spectra of Galactic OB stars (the IACOB spectroscopic database), and the scientific exploitation of the database using state-of-the-art models and techniques.

      More details about the project can be found in Simon-Diaz et al. (2011a, 2011b, 2015) and the project webpage.


      The IACOB spectroscopic database is based on observations made with the Nordic Optical Telescope operated by Nordic Optical Telescope Scientific Association, and the Mercator Telescope, operated by the Flemish Community, both at the Observatorio de El Roque de los Muchachos (La Palma, Spain) of the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias

Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía

  • Name of the archive: AMIGA
    • Web page:
    • Description: AMIGA is a multiwavelength database for a refinement of the pioneering Catalog of Isolated Galaxies (CIG: Karachentseva 1973; n = 1050 galaxies) including optical, IR and radio line and continuum measures in order to characterise all phases of the ISM. For most galaxies we provide: Coordinates - Optical magnitudes - Velocities - Revised morphology - FIR Luminosities - Isolation Parameters.

The TAPAS Archive

Name of organisation / laboratory in charge of the data centre:

  • Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía - CSIC / IRAM

Description of the service

  • The Telescope Access for Public Archive System (TAPAS) provides a homogeneous, and searchable database of the header information of all astronomical observations conducted at the IRAM 30m telescope. TAPAS was built in a collaborative effort between IRAM and IAA/CSIC. At present, TAPAS contains all header data taken between end of September 2009 and now.

Description of the service:

  • IFCA (as a member of the XMM-Newton Survey Science Centre, SSC) has led the elaboration of AXIS (An XMM International Survey) project, which constitutes the backbone of the XMM-Newton X-ray follow-up and identification (XID) programme performed by the SSC. The AXIS survey includes 36 fields observed by the XMM-Newton satellite. An optical follow-up focused on the medium flux sources has been done using different facilities. Using quality criteria, 25 fields have been selected from the AXIS sample to comprise the XMS (X-ray Medium Survey), a flux limited sample in several X-ray bands. It contains 319 unique X-ray sources, optically identified to a level above 90%. This resource comprises the optical spectra of these sources.
