New version of CDS Portal

Created: January 17, 2017 - 16:32 CET

We just released a new version of the CDS Portal. It provides a single-page summary of and access to CDS services and resources available for a given object or position.


On the technical side, the new portal is built upon Javascript widgets querying the MocServer to quickly retrieve available datasets for the requested target. Aladin Lite is used to display data of interest (HiPS (Hierarchical Progressive Surveys) images, catalogues, etc).

A detailed description of the technologies used can be found in this presentation.
