National Virtual Observatory Architecture

Part of the ESO ASTROPHYSICS SYMPOSIA book series (ESO)

Abstract.

The National Virtual Observatory is assembling web services, data analysis pipelines, and grid software to support astronomical research. The initial goal is to facilitate access to existing sky surveys and provide standard services for manipulating catalogs and image collections. The long-range goal is to support analyses of entire sky surveys and enable applications that examine multiple collections. The layers of software infrastructure required to provide these goals are examined.
