Hackathon, Euro-VO Technology Forum 3, 9-10 May 2012

  • Topcat/CDS crossmatch discussion : Mark + Thomas + FX + Pierre + Ana´s
Access to CDS cross-match service from TOPCAT.

Rationale : For VizieR catalogues or access to SIMBAD data, multicone queries might be replaced by access to the CDS cross-match service which would give faster results to TOPCAT users (and decrease the servers load).

What was agreed :

- CDS will provide Mark Taylor with a HTTP API to consume the cross-match service (table upload + xmatch parameters)

- GUI: First idea was for CDS to provide a sketch or prototype of the GUI, Mark to polish/reimplement. On second thoughts, the requirement is basically the same as for the existing Multi-cone capability, so most of that can be re-used - no action required from CDS on the GUI unless they think of something new.

- Mark will implement this in STILTS and TOPCAT when time allows. Late this year?

  • Aladin/Outreach : Massimo + Aladin team (Pierre&Caroline) (9 May)
    • Aladin improvements in "outreach" mode
      1) Static banner background (first screen) will be replaced by Allsky DSS color Healpix
      2) In case of out of network service, display the warning message at the first time that the network is required (for avoiding this error message at start time)
      3) Remove the spectra list (All VO tab)
      4) Add links to VO outreach site
    • to be tested
      1) Random plane color function (just for trying to have a better choice of default colors)
      2) In the Help menu, provide a default image+catalog for showing the capabilities without network connection
    • When we will have time
      1) Update the documentation
