The Evolution of Dissemination of Astronomical Data

Françoise Genova
1997 Open Astronomy  
The role of the "general" and the "specialized" data centers, the impact of the WWW development and the consequences of electronic publishing of astronomical journals on traditional activities of data  ...  The ways and means for the dissemination of astronomical data have changed rapidly in recent years, owing in particular to accelerating technical evolution.  ...  The large ground-based and space-born observatories, the large surveys such as DENIS, 2MASS, SLOAN or the large Schmidt telescope catalogs (PPM, GSC I and II, APM, APS, etc.), produce larger and larger  ...
