|2020-04-23||Jupyter Notebooks||The new page: ESO Science Archive Programmatic: HOWTOs offers a series of Jupyter Notebooks to learn how to script your access in python.|
When new notebooks will be available, they will be announced in this page.
- How to download data (both anonymously and via authentication)
- How to query for reduced data (including queries to find areas of the sky covered in different bands for multiband photometry)
- More to come soon...
|2020-04-23||Authentication||Programmatic authenticated access to proprietary data is now fully supported via both basic authentication and JWT tokens (OAuth2.0). (Read more...)
|2020-04-23||Cutout service||Positional and spectral cutouts of science data products is now available. The service is fully compliant to the IVOA Server-side Operations for Data Access (SODA) protocol. (Read more...)
|2020-04-23||DataLink||The ESO DataLink service now supports:
- proprietary data
- the SODA protocol, to allow an easy programmatic access to the VO-compliant ESO cutout services
|2020-04-23||tap_obsObsCore table||The ivoa.ObsCore table now supports the ALMA data, on top of the already served reduced data from La Silla Paranal Observatory (including APEX) [LPO].|
- Integrated data discovery experience for both ALMA and LPO processed data
- Full support for powerful spatial queries
- Ability to cross-match LPO and ALMA data
- Currently, new ALMA data are not immediately visible through this interface; instead, they are published here manually about twice a month. The aim is to make this operation fully automatic, and to remove this publishing delay. Time scale: a couple of months.
- The datalink service is not available for ALMA data.
- The cutout service is not available for ALMA data.
|Boosted performance (up to a factor 10) of the table that serves raw data. Also added 1 new column: datalink_url which, for the raw file at hand, provides access to its calibration reference files (see news 2019-11-25 calibration files service below) and/or to its pipeline-processed products (if it exists)|
|added 4 new columns: multi_ob, obstech, p3orig, and publication_date (see page description above)|
demo script to illustrate how to download both the science raw frames, and the calibration files needed to calibrate them (via the DataLink and calibration files services):
|2019-11-25||DataLink||the ESO DataLink service has been modified to add, when exercised on science raw frames, the access urls (one for raw2raw and one for raw2master) that can be used to download the list of calibration files needed to calibrate them. (See documentation)|
|2019-11-25||new archive service||the calibration files service is now available via http; it allows the users to discover which calibration files are needed to calibrate a given science raw frame, and then to download them.|
|2019-11-15||ESASky v3.2||The lastes version of the ESA portal that lets you visualise and download public astronomical data, offers now ESO data via the ESO TAP and DataLink services. Great use of VO standards for the interoperability of two leading astronomical institutes in Europe! |
|2019-02-20||async Query Manager||added ability to set the execution duration of an async job (default: 60 s, maximum: 3600 s).|
|2019-02-13||scripted access||eso_raw.py was updated to reflect a change to the table structure (the access_url field points to the datalink and no longer to the direct file download link).|
|2019-01-22||the TAP tab in this html page||Added mechanism to customise query form via URL (useful e.g. for archive news). Specs available. Correspondingly, added the Create link to this page button in the TAP tab, so that the tab (with its query and form settings) can be bookmarked and sent to colleagues.|
|re-organised and improved query examples (in the "Choose a query..." pulldown menu)|
|2018-10-22||tap_cat||fixed erroneous datatypes of various catalog columns|
|2018-10-16||dataset actions||fixed issue that did not allow to use the dataset ID of a raw file|
|2018-09-17||scripted access||added example to query and download raw data in python (eso_raw.py)|
|2018-08-02||tap_obs||table of raw data renamed to dbo.raw|
|2018-07-02||this html page||creation|
