So how you people access the data, and what are people looking for?--Rayc 04:21, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Did you look at Galactic evolution? This is just an example of how you could set up a project to look at data in a public database. --JWSchmidt 03:07, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Something like this?--Rayc 03:30, 19 September 2006 (UTC)


If we could work up a list, we could have people look for things and count them, do a survey.--Rayc 03:31, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

I wonder if it would be possible to convert the data into some kind of map. --JWSchmidt 14:17, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
It probably came from one...--Rayc 02:57, 20 September 2006 (UTC)
From what I saw at GALEX it looks like a database of individual images. Each astronomer requests time to use the telescope to observe a single object. The product is a large number of snapshots from such observations. Other missions, like COBE or IRAS, scan the sky in a methodical way and create a map of the entire sky.--mikeu 15:51, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
