Title: Distributed Information Search and Retrieval for Astronomical Resource Discovery and Data Mining
Subject: Fionn Murtagh,Damien Guillaume Distributed Information Search and Retrieval for Astronomical Resource Discovery and Data Mining
Description: . Information search and retrieval has become by nature a distributed task. We look at tools and techniques which are of importance in this area. Current technological evolution can be summarized as the growing stability and cohesiveness of distributed architectures of searchable objects. The objects themselves are more often than not multimedia, including published articles or grey literature reports, yellow page services, image data, catalogs, presentation and online display materials, and "operations" information such as scheduling and publicly accessible proposal information. The evolution towards distributed architectures, protocols and formats, and the direction of our own work, are focussed on in this paper. 1. Needs and Existing Solutions in Astronomy Astronomy is characterized by massive data collections which are often incompatible, from many di#erent sources, and stored in many di#erent ways . The user -- astronomer or librarian -- needs access in a common environment. T...
