Data Access Web Services demo

  • Result formatting - accept header - OK?
  • Links in html version of results OK?
  • API for running queries

Workflow for non-trivial queries

  • Say a query is: "return cutouts for all sources matching a given database query, say "select sourceId from Source where sourceId in (123, 444, 567).
  • Check it applies cleanly to usecase Xiuqin described in DM-1916.

Qserv testing

  • need faster turnaround


  • dataset / repo etc
  • In IPAC archives, dataset always refers to a collection of data. 

    • For WISE, each data release is a dataset: like preliminary release, allsky release, AllWISE release, ...

    • For Spitzer, each legacy or exploration team produce a set of data, they are re  leased with each team name or the program name 

    • Sometimes a dataset includes both catalogs and images; sometimes only catalogs   or images in a dataset.

    • Inside a dataset, they are further separated into smaller units, sometimes by   type (catlog, image, spectrum).

    • Images can be further separated by level of data products (level1-single frame   image, leve2-coadded image), and by  wavelength (wise has 4 bands).

    • For each image, there are also ancillary data associated with it, like artifacts, uncertainty, coverage, PSF file, mask, ...

  • organization of data will affect the REST API when specifying resource. What's repo definition? 
  • Also, "types" 
    • see DM-1916
    • Level = DC, L1, L2, L3, dev
    • (Image) Collection = some label (e.g. DR1, DR2, ktl/test20150202)
    • (Image) Kind = raw, fpC, deepCoadd, diffim, template, etc.

VO cutout service

IPAC table format

  • need to discuss passing metadata
