[34.07] Serving Data to the GLAST User Community

D.J. Horner (NASA/GSFC), GLAST Science Support Center Team

The scientific community will access the public GLAST data through the website of the GLAST Science Support Center (GSSC). For most data products the GSSC website will link to the NASA High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Research Center's (HEASARC) Browse interface, which will actually serve the data. However, the photon list produced by the Large Area Telescope (LAT), GLAST's primary instrument, will require a customized GSSC interface. These photons will be detected over the LAT's large field-of-view, usually while the LAT is scanning the sky, and thus cannot be attributed to the observation of a particular object. Users will request all photons detected from a region on the sky over a specified time and energy range. Data from the GLAST Burst Monitor (GBM) from a given burst will be packaged together and accessible through Browse. Through its website the GSSC will also provide long and short term science timelines, and GLAST-related GCN Notices and Circulars. The different data products provided by the GSSC will be described.
