VO-DANCE

Smareglia, Riccardo

We present a tool for rapid IVOA compliant services deployment. Users which want to publish their datasets to the Virtual Observatory can achieve this goal without dealing with the technical details of standard services development and without having to move their data.

With VO-DANCE users just have to render a database connection pointing to their data available to our centre and fill a metadata description form without export there metadata. A simple “administrative interface” allow the user to model their own/dedicated archive/catalog, created the service on the fly and published, through the Italian Astronomical Archive Centre (IA2), to the Virtual Observatory.

VO-DANCE has been developed for catalog, but a “file server bridge” is under development to deploy image and spectra directly.
