Information on Service 'GAVO Data Center Obscore Form'

[Use this service from your browser]

Further access options are discussed below

This is a simple form-based service allowing users to run simple queries against GAVO Data Center's ivoa.obscore table, with some nods to users looking of data near the optical waveband. For serious use, the obscore table should be queried through TAP.

Note that queries without spatial constraints may take time out. You probably ought to switch to async TAP if you really want to run such queries.

Overview

You can access this service using:

This service is published as follows:

local means it is listed on our front page, ivo_managed means it has a record in the VO registry.

VOTable Output Fields

The following fields are available in VOTable output. The verbosity level is a number intended to represent the relative importance of the field on a scale of 1 to 30. The services take a VERB argument. A field is included in the output if their verbosity level is less or equal VERB*10.
