Spanish Virtual Observatory

MySpec-MyImage

Tools for publication of spectra and images

J. Manuel Alacid

MySpec and MyImg are applications intended to facilitate the publication of spectra and images, both as a web page and as Virtual Observatory SIAP and SSAP services.

They have been designed to build the services from a collection of spectra or images and without any previous knowledge of any programming language.

A clear guidance of what to do and how to proceed to publish VO-compliant data was a major requirement for the Spanish data providers.

  • See a pdf presentation with more information.
  • See the online documentation.
  • If you are interested in creating your own archive using this tool you have to contact with us to obtain the .war file.

Configuration

On purpose, the tools do not work like black boxes. Some technical knowledge is required, in particular if changes in the standard functionalities are required.

Technical requirements:

  • Tomcat 7
  • Java 6
  • Postgresql 9

Data requirements:

  • Data (spectra/image) have to be in FITS format.
  • The header must contain the RA and DEC keywords, both in decimal degrees, and TIME keyword for spectra data.

Installation

Once the tool is deployed, you can access via url a private web page where the project can be defined.

Here you must define your data and how to show them (search form and result page). The system will create the database and will
ingest the data there.

Final result

Once the configuration process is done, the web application and the VO service will be ready.
