Last week, I blogged about the ODI archive architecture, based on a talk given by Arvind Gopu at the SPIE Meeting in Montreal, Canada on June 22nd. This week I will write about the user services layered on top of the architecture. The architecture offers registered users data search, access and reduction and processing capabilities all from a web interface with Single Sign-On support built in. A user workflow diagram looks like this:
Some of the services that support these workflows are described briefly below.
A Personalized Dashboard shows users the status of their queries and jobs, and their pipeline data products:
XY-plotting provides customizable, interactive plots:
The image visualizer provides thumbnails, provenance and QA information:
An image and source explorer includes the capability to create a source catalog:
Finally, the Tier 2 workflows allow end users to process data with the following capabilities:
- Quick reduction to calibrate raw data
- SWarp to stack image data.
- Source Extractor (SExtractor) to generate source catalogs.
