6 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, SDSS-II Legacy –Continuation of SDSS-I (fill out 10k sq.deg.) –Completeness is same as for SDSS-I –Flux limits are the same –Target all galaxies with r_petro < 17.77, plus LRGs SEGUE –Detailed 3-d map of the Galaxy Spectra of 240,000 stars in the disk and spheroid Age, composition and phase space distribution –CAS component cataloged in SegueDRx DB Supernova Survey –Repeated scans of SDSS Southern Stripe over 3 mths/yr –Data not available in CAS yet, will be on DAS soon

7 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, Publication Policy CollaborationClick on Collaboration link on –Scroll to bottom SDSS Publication Procedures –Click on SDSS Publication Procedures Proprietary data –Announce project to SDSS Projects Page –Add SDSS credits/acknowledgements to papers –Reference SDSS Technical Papers –Post manuscript to SDSS Publications Page External Collaborators and Participants –Post requests to sdss-coco and sdss-general mailing lists –Ask your local CoCo rep (he won’t bite)

8 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, CAS Datasets BestDRx –Latest, greatest calibration of the data –Photometric and spectroscopic objects –The default and most accessed (by far) dataset TargDRx –The calibration from which spectroscopic targets were chosen RUNS –All the runs (processings) other than Best, Target SegueDRx –New with DR6 (SDSS-II)

9 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, CAS Data Model (Best DB)

10 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, DR6 CAS BestDR6, TargDR6 and SegueDR6 databases –SegueDR6 = SEGUE stripes May be rolled into BestDRx in the future SkyServer: –Also pwd access at for non-collab IPshttp://cas.sdss.org/collabdr6pw –See message sdss-archive/2935 for uname/pwd CasJobs: –DR6 and DR6QA targets point to BestDR6 DB –TARGDR6, SEGUEDR6 targets –Need to have “collab” privilege set in user profile

11 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, CAS Data Access SkyServer –Web browser-based synchronous access –Meant to support several levels of users From casual to moderately advanced queries From simple form-based to direct SQL queries From cone (radial) search to crossid type searches –Visual tools to browse image and catalog data –API access, e.g. emacs interface, sqlcl (command-line) –Strict limits on execution time and output size Fair use for everyone, robots/crawlers discouraged ImgCutout –Finding Chart and JPEG image browser –Accessible from SkyServer (Visual Tools)

12 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, CasJobs Link in SkyServer (http://cas.sdss.org/casjobs)http://cas.sdss.org/casjobs Batch Query Workbench, personal user DB (MyDB) –Quick mode: 1 minute cutoff –Submit mode: up to 8 hours in “long” queue 24-hr queue for collab members Preferred method for serious queries MyDB database to save results of your queries –Define your own functions, procedures too –Share your tables with collaborators (groups) Job history, plotting, FITS/CSV/VOTable output Table Import (upload) for your own data Groups to share your results with collaborators Command-line access Java tool also downloadable

13 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, Using CasJobs Every query has a default “target” –The database that it will operate on –e.g., MyDB, DR4, DR5, CollabDR4, DR5QA, BESTRUNS etc. Each target is hosted on a separate server –Provides load balancing and performance –Some quirks/restrictions due to distributed execution –Help page and FAQ explain these Ability to do distributed joins between different datasets –e.g., between DR4 and DR5 or RUNS and DR5

14 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, Collab-only access collabdrx SkyServer sites –IP-restricted access to collabdrx URL –Password access to collabdrxpw URL from other IPs –Larger query limits (e.g., 1 hour/500k rows) “collab” privilege in CasJobs –Gives you access to restricted data, additional longer queues (e.g. DR5QA, DR6QA 24-hr queues) –If you have collab priv set, you will see these queues –If you don’t have it,

15 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, RUNS Data available only to Collab - RUNS RUNS DB –SkyServer: Also for pwd accesshttp://cas.sdss.org/runspw –CasJobs: BESTRUNS context –Mostly SEGUE (half) runs and stripe 82 (most) DRx runs still be added over next few months –Imaging only, no spectra May be possible to link to BEST spectra with join –Use match tables to match up repeat observations in multiple runs

16 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, SkyServer Help Resources HelpHelp menu option on top right of SkyServer Archive IntroStart with Archive Intro Query LimitsHow ToNext look at Query Limits and How To pages Introduction to SQLSample QueriesThen Introduction to SQL and Sample Queries Optimizing Queries –Look at Optimizing Queries page (esp. bookmark bug) –Try out some of the sample queries –Cut and paste to SQL search page (Tools  Search  SQL) FAQ Schema BrowserBrowse FAQ and Schema Browser Glossary Table DescriptionsAlgorithmsGlossary, Table Descriptions and Algorithms –Searchable, dynamically loaded from DB, interlinked –The,, symbols are links to Glossary, Algorithm and Table Description entries Data release and technical papersData release and technical papers

17 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, CasJobs Help SQL IntroSchema BrowserShares SQL Intro, Schema Browser with SkyServer FAQHas its own FAQ page –Lists differences between CasJobs and SkyServer due to distributed query execution Advanced CasJobs QueriesAdvanced CasJobs Queries page –Neighbor searches with fixed and variable search radii –Cursors –Compound queries

18 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, Sample Queries 50+ sample queries from simple to complex Available in SkyServer and CasJobs Clean photometry meta-flags sample INNER/OUTER JOIN samples Sector/Region tables usage sample Variability queries from Robert and Zeljko CasJobs Advanced Queries Help page –Has examples of neighbor searches, cursors etc.

19 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, SkyServer General Tips Use astro or collab sites –Less “frills”, more direct access to tools –More generous query limits (timeouts, row limits) HelpQuery LimitsSee Help  Query Limits page Collab site is restricted access, largest query limits –Some extra features e.g. Imaging/Spectro form query Each release has separate sites –http://cas.sdss.org/collab/ (the public release)http://cas.sdss.org/collab/ –http://cas.sdss.org/collabdr6/ (not yet public)http://cas.sdss.org/collabdr6/ ContactUse Contact link when ing help-desk

20 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, Find the right tool for the job ToolsVisual ToolsVisual exploration: Tools  Visual Tools  Explore –Browse objects one at a time: Explore page Shows all parameters for object, also its image and spectrum Finding Chart –Browse and find objects on a frame: Finding Chart Navigate –Navigate image frames: Navigate Image List –View multiple objects with query: Image List ToolsGet ImagesBrowse images: Tools  Get Images  Fields –Frames: Fields browser Plates –Spectroscopic plates: Plates browser Spectra –View individual spectra: Spectra browser

21 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, Finding the right tool (contd.) ToolsSearchSQL search: Tools  Search  Radial –Cone (radial) search: Radial search form Rectangular –Region (rectangle) search: Rectangular search form Imaging Query –Imaging form query: Imaging Query form Spectro Query –Spectroscopic form query: Spectro Query form SQL –All other searches: SQL search page ToolsObject CrossidCross-matching: Tools  Object Crossid  Upload –Imaging crossid: Upload SpecList –Spectro crossid: SpecList CasJobsAdvanced,unrestricted SQL queries: CasJobs –Your own personal DB –Retrieve results when you are ready

22 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, CAS Dos and Don’ts Do notDo not submit a query unless you have some idea how long it will take! –It could tie up the server for hours (sometimes days)! –Do a “count” query first if necessary PlanCasjobs also has a graphical query plan (Plan button) –Look at samples, query optimization pages –If not sure, use form queries at first Use the predefined views for unique/primary objects –PhotoObjPhotoPrimary –PhotoObj, PhotoPrimary for photometry PhotoTag –Consider using PhotoTag table if you only need popular fields Makes better use of cache –SpecObj –SpecObj for spectra

23 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, Dos and Don’ts (contd.) ContactUse the Contact link to contact Help Desk –Fill the short form, which gives us necessary information –In CasJobs, press Contact after logging in Automatically attaches your userid to the message –Will speed up response to your request Do notDo not contact Help Desk staff directly –Questions are answered by a pool of experts as available –More likely to get delayed or no response (unless you can bug them in person ) If you run out of MyDB space, ask for more!! –We’re pretty liberal about giving more space, but you have to ask (to avoid empty/unused MyDBs taking up space)

24 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, SDSS and other datasets GALEX –Has its own CasJobs page hosted by MAST –SDSS vs GALEX cross-matches DR5 vs GR2 and DR4 vs GR2 available now DR5 vs GR3 coming soon Link table with IDs from both catalogs SDSS parameters for GALEX matches also extracted Some older datasets matched in BEST DB –FIRST, USNOB, ROSAT, USNOB proper motions Open SkyQuery site for other datasets –Only small-area xmatches possible at the moment

25 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, Virtual Observatory JHU is one of the main participants –SDSS is one of the drivers for NVO –Co-PI (Szalay) and Project Manager (Hanisch) here JHU VO services –Open SkyQuery (http://openskyquery.net/)http://openskyquery.net/ –VO services (http://voservices.org/)http://voservices.org/ Spectrum services Filter profiles Footprint services (new!) VO registry (with STScI) Standard VO services: Cone Search, SIAP

26 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, Educational Resources Extensive EPO content in SkyServer Projects –Use Projects link on the menu at the top –K-12 and college level student exercises and teacher resources Open SkyQuery / Cross-match EPO project Jordan Raddick’s talk on May 1

27 Ani Thakar JHU CAS Seminar, March 6, Coming Attractions (or not …) FITS cutout service –VO-India is developing a service –There are technical difficulties with mosaicing multiple SDSS frames How to handle different S/N, PSFs across frames? Non-SDSS datasets in CasJobs –Merging of CasJobs and Open SkyQuery features –Ability to do large-scale cross-matches with other datasets within CasJobs environment
