Information & On-Line Data in Astronomy

Author: D Egret; Miguel A Albrecht
Publisher: Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint : Springer, 1995.
Series: Astrophysics and space science library, 203.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Bibliographic data : English
Summary:
The ability of storing, managing, and giving access to the huge quantity of data collected by astronomical observatories is one of the major challenges of modern astronomy. At the same time, the growing complexity of data systems implies a change of concepts: the scientist has to manipulate data as well as information. Recent developments of the 'WorldWideWeb' bring interesting answers to these problems. <br/>  Read more...
