  • Validation of GAIA data would be performed by comparing it with predictions of the Besancon model. In turn, predictions of Besancon model for various observed quantities e.g. distribution of stars in magnitude bins, colors, proper motion, etc. must be compared with previous observations to confirm the consistency of model with present observations. For this purpose we use IGSL catalogue which is created by combining data from several big astronomical catalogues such as SDSS, MASS2, GSC23, Hipparcos (for bight stars), etc. and compare it with GUMS, the catalogue of mock stars generated according to Besancon model of the Milky Way. Despite the presence of artifacts due to calibrational errors in IGSL, and possible over-estimation in galactic plane and under-estimation of number of stars in high galactic latitude by GUMS, they are grossly in agreement with each other and can be used to verify for GAIA data.

    Furthermore to discriminate between artifacts and real differences of two catalogues we are performing a decomposition to harmonic oscillator. This method allows to discriminate large and small scale structures in the data. Currently we are analysing the results and utility of this method.

  • Following the conversion from radian to degree for the IGSL catalogue at GEPI, the software tool Hudson send an error message concerning the JUnit test for the VTS WP942-110-030, which gets the minimum and maximum values for alpha and delta from the Data Model for IGSL. Since these values are still in radian (e.g. 0 < alpha < 2*pi), the JUnit fail (i.e. expecting 0 < alpha < 360). A mantis was reopen about this issue (see mantis #0025775). As long as the Data Model for IGSL remains in radian, Hudson will send an error for WP942 for the JUnit of VTS WP942-110-030 (August 2014) - Boudreault

  • INAF-OATs: Molinaro (0.15) Smareglia 0.15) Butora (0.5 from June 1st 2014)

Work done:

  • (T3.1) Organised coordination telecon with INAF-OATs (July 21st 2014): VO-Dance developments reaffirmed as per original GENIUS proposal
  • (T3.1) Represented GENIUS system design team at CU9 Plenary / GENIUS Consortium meeting in Vienna (7/8th July 2014)
  • (T3.3) INAF-OATs team continuing development of VO-Dance for
    • generic TAP functionality
    • deployment testing at OATo Data Centre
    • enhancements/development of a Virtual Appliance out-of-the-box deployable application.
  • UEDIN team continuing development of
    • (T3.4) Distributed Query Processing generic design: final draft Interface Coordination agreement (ICD) now with ESAC-SAT for their comments and agreement
    • (T3.4) Proposing some enhancements to IVOA ADQL standard for commonly implemented, but as yet not adopted, SQL features for server side processing in scale-out situations
    • (T3.2) Working on enhancements to Gaia CU9 Data Modelling UI application to aid in CU9 interface control:
      • Following agreement with DPAC CU1 in Vienna, enhancing tool to output all encapsulated information in the form of Javadoc to facilitate doclet parsing into GACS including translation of latex markup into html since the former is extensively used by data modellers
      • Finalising unit testing of new features
  • (T3.3) UEDIN developers attended IVOA meeting at ESAC and liaised with ESAC-SAT members
  • (T3.1) UEDIN management continuing to contribute to CU9 archive prototype data model from a systems design perspective
