Astronomical Open Research Data Analysis Services (AstroORDAS)

Gratuit, sur inscription :

Modern astronomy faces an avalanche of diverse data, sometimes further complicated by the need for immediate and necessarily automated reaction on elusive cosmic phenomena. Furthermore, previously disjointed astrophysical research communities recently reached a stage where they routinely combine their efforts to address shared scientific challenges, leading to emergence of multi-messenger astrophysics. A scientist tackling the nature of astrophysical objects while facing this broad, rapidly changing landscape may often find it difficult to effectively employ their scientific intuition, make progress, and share their discoveries while maintaining and improving on veracity and reproducibility of scientific results.

In the AstroORDAS project we are building tools empowering researchers to leverage vast and diverse astronomical Open Research Data. We are doing this by supporting Astrophysical Data Centers with an ecosystem of cloud-based services and technologies serving to provide added value to the data with the aim to implement the Findable Accessible Interoperable Reusable (FAIR) principles in collection, elaboration, and dissemination of research artifacts, building upon our Multi-Messenger Online Data Analysis (MMODA) platform.
