Data Discovery


The Paris Astronomical Data Centre Legacy Portal provides an easy way to access a sample of Astronomical VO data available at Paris Observatory. With only one query you can access to SIA, SSA, Cone Search and TAP resources.

Practical use

1. Fill query form

You must fill the query form with valid values. The basic query form allows you to query on position or target name. If you want to fill more query parameters click on the advanced link.

2. Discover resources

Once your query is submitted you can discover astronomical resources of PADC. The resources containing data that match your query are flagged with a green thick.

3. Get data

You can get data in two formats: VOTABLE and HTML. To get them click on the corresponding link. With the HTML view you can send data directly to VO applications by using SAMP.
