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 (Linux users only) and execute it from a terminal using “java -jar Aladin.jar”. MacOS and Windows users: download the suitable files here. Aladin is compatible with Java releases from Java release 1.7 to the last one. More information here.

  • TOPCAT: Download the topcat-full.jar file and execute it from a terminal using “java -jar topcat-full.jar” (Linux and Windows users). MacOS users: download the suitable file here. 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. See the documentation here.

  • VOSA: Web server (you don't need to install anything). All participants must register in advance.
     

  • STILTS: Download the stilts.jar file. MacOS users may need to install JDK to be able to run STILTS. See the documentation here.

 For a correct developement of the school, we encourage all participants to test Aladin, TOPCAT and STILTS following this short video and using this file.
