The increase of astronomical data

The total area of astro telescopes in m**2

The total Gigapixels of CCDs.

The number of pixels and the data double every year!

The Increase Of Astronomical Data

IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003


Challenges

Challenges

  • The quantity of data nearly amounts to PB.

  • The data is distributed and stored in heterogeneous DBMSs in heterogeneous

    host environments.

IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003


The vo s goal

The VO’s Goal

  • The VO’s initial goal is to federate existing astronomical data archives and provide standard services for manipulating these data.

HOW TO REACH THIS GOAL?

The Grid technology can solve the problem!

IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003


What is grid

What is Grid

  • Grid technology has been driven by genesis from metacomputing, but…

  • In practice, the Grid is about resource sharing and coordinated problem solving in dynamic, multi-institutional virtual organizations

  • Focus on how to enable, maintain and control the sharing of resources to achieve a common goal

IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003


What grid offers

What “Grid“ offers:

  • Resource management protocols and services that support secure remote access to shared data resources and computing and the co-allocation of multiple resources.

  • Security solutions that support management of credentials and policies.

  • Information query protocols and services that provide configuration and status information about resources,organizations and services.

  • Data Management services that locate and transport datasets between storage systems and applications.

IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003


What is ogsa

What is OGSA

  • The Open Grid Services Architecture (OGSA) represents an evolution towards a Grid system architecture based on Web services concepts and technologies. 

  • The OGSA integrates key Grid technologies (including the Globus Toolkit with Web services mechanisms to create a distributed system framework based around the Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI).

In Grids ,Everything is Service

IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003


The open grid services architecture

The Open Grid Services Architecture

  • Service orientation to virtualize resources

  • From Web services:( everything is service)

    -Standard interface definition mechanisms:multiple protocol bindings,multiple implementations,local/remote transparency

  • Building on Globus Toolkit:

    -Grid service :semantics for service interactions

    -Management of transient instances

    -Factory,Registry,Discovery,other services

    -Reliable and secure transport

  • Multiple host environments:J2EE,.NET,C,…

Construct the astronomical data grid

Construct The Astronomical Data Grid

The astronomical data service is the most fundamental and important component in Virtual Observatory.

In the aspect of data share, the VO can be think as a astronomical Data Grid

VO=Astronomical Data Grid

The classification of astronomical data service

The Classification of Astronomical Data Service

  • Astronomical Catalog Service

  • Image Mosaic Service

  • Spectrum Data Service

  • Simulation Data Service

IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003

Existing Astronomical Datasets we have

IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003


Build catalog data service

Build Catalog Data Service

How to federate the catalog data into VO,that is, how to build Data Service using the existing databases and programs?

IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003


Define catalog service interface

Define Catalog Service Interface

Some standards we used:

  • Input Query Language : SQL(now),ADQL (plan)

  • Output Data Format: VOTable 1.0

  • Catalog resource metadata registry protocol:

    VOResource 0.9

input: ADQL query sentence

output: VOTable format result

it makes service interface/API simple.

IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003


How to use existing databases and programs to create catalog data service

How to use existing databases and programs to create catalog data service

How to create a catalog data service that can understand ADQL and generate VOTable format result??

we adopt two ways!

  • Reconstruct the existing catalog DBMS

  • Encapsulate search program,like pmm

    The CDS has offered search program for big catalog like USNO A2,0…..

IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003


Advantage and disadvantage

Advantage and disadvantage

  • Can sufficiently use the functions of SQL language and implement complex query.

  • DBMSs offer the most powerful functions for data management and maintenance.

  • Need many works to reconstruct the DBs.

  • To big catalogs, like USNOB1.0,2MASS PSC, query efficiency is low

Advantage and disadvantage1

Advantage and disadvantage

  • Positional search is quicker than DB

  • Only offer search functions that programs could offer. Many programs only offer position search functions,no statistical functions.

Our next work is to build a

multi-wavelength cross-identification service (MWCI)based on the catalog data service.

What is multi-wavelength cross-identification ?

To cross-identify datasets by positional consistency, we can understand objects from different wavelength properties.

IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003


The steps of multi wavelength cross identification

The steps of multi-wavelengthcross-identification

  • Cross-identify datasets from different wavelengths within error radius.

  • Divide the result of cross-identification into three situations: one-to-one, one-to-two, one-to-many.

  • Choose the one-to-one entry for data mining

  • The other two situations need statistical analysis to determine which source are the true counterpoint.

IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003


Requirements

Requirements

  • Locate the datasets that users want to use.

    (dataset discovery)

  • How to cross-match the datasets in heterogeneous DBMSs at different locations effectively and efficiently.

  • Find storage resource to store the results

  • 2. incomplete, example:HTMID has no UCD

  • Lack of standard for Unit
