[52.08] Collaborative Virtual Observatories using CoSEC

N. Hurlburt, P. Bose, S. Freeland, M. Woodward, G. Slater (LMATC)

The ``Virtual Observatories" (VOs) movement is underway to organize space science data into discipline-based VOs. These would provide easy, online access to large volumes of data. We extend this idea to include interactions between these VOs, creating collaborative virtual observatories. The Collaborative Sun-Earth Connector (CoSEC) is used as a test bed for this concept. We demonstrate possible interactions between Virtual observatories by integrating the prototype Virtual Solar Observatory (VSO) and European Grid of Solar Observations (EGSO) with space science services already incorporated into CoSEC. In addition we present more advanced concepts of how Collaborative Observatories might increase the scientific productivity.

This research has been supported through NASA contract NNH04CC00C.
