Programme

It is important to have installed beforehand in your laptops the VO-tools to be used in the School, namely:

  • ALADIN: Download the Aladin.jar file and execute it from a terminal using “java -jar Aladin.jar”. Aladin is compatible with Java releases from Java release 1.7 to the last one.
  • TOPCAT: Download the topcat-full.jar file and execute it from a terminal using “java -jar topcat-full.jar”. TOPCAT is written in the Java language using the Java 2 Standard Edition version 8, and should run on any Java SE 8 or more recent system.
  • VOSA: Web server. You don't need to install anything. We recommend to register in advance.
  • STILTS: Download the stilts.jar file and execute it from a terminal using “java -jar stilts.jar”.
