1 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics1 Publishing and Resource Discovery with Registries Ray Plante Gretchen Greene

2 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics2 All about Registries Overview of the Registry Framework Publishing to the NVO Visits to Registries (publishing) VOResource: Resource Metadata in XML Visits to Registries (searching) IVOA Standard Registry Interface Exercise: query registry in an application

3 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics3 The role of Resource Registries Used to discover and locate resourcesdata and servicesthat can be used in a VO application Resource: anything that is describable and identifiable. –Besides data and services: organizations, projects, software, … –Presently concerned with simple set of resource types Registry: a list of resource descriptions –Expressed as structured metadata to enable automated processing and searching

4 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics4 An Overview of Data Discovery You can search the main NVO registry to find resources based on descriptive criteria NVO Registries are coarse-grained –You can find organizations, archives, catalogs –Wont find images, celestial objects, table records Registry framework contains multiple registries: –searchable registries –publishing registries

11 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics11 NVO Public Registries RegistryURLSearchable?Publishing? STScI/JHU NVO Registry Caltech Carnivorehttp://nvo.caltech.edu:8080/carnivore/Yes NCSA Registration Portal Private Publishing Registries HEASARC CDS Only support harvesting protocol

12 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics12 Overview of Publishing Resources are published if one can use NVO facilities to find them. How to Publish to the NVO –Multiple layers of publishing Starts with registry description of resource Data Access Services Incremental exposure for incremental effort –Who are you? How you publish depends on what you want to publish. An individual with a small data collection An archive center Someone with a cool service

13 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics13 Small collections: VO-ready Repositories Repositories that allow users to deposit data to share with community –Guarantee long-term storage, availability Automatic support for VO publishing mechamisms –Entries into NVO Registry –Support for standard services: Cone Search, SIA, SSA, SkyNode Currently available Repositories –Images: NCSA Astronomy Digital Image Library –Spectra: Spectrum Service for the VO More public repositories are expected to emerge Check NVO website (http://us-vo.org/) for latesthttp://us-vo.org/

14 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics14 Persistent Archives: Tools for Federation Registering your resources with a VO publishing registry –Enter description into registration form at one of the available NVO registries: STScI/JHU Registry: NCSA Registration Portal: Caltech Carnivore: –If you have a large number of resources to register, you can run your own registry on your own site Caltech Carnivore: NCSA VORegistry-in-a-Box

15 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics15 Which registry should I register with? –Behavior is slightly different –Different strategies for making it easier to register multiple resources –More uniform support is underway Support for standard services is strongest –Cone Search, SIA, SkyNode –SkyNode: go to STScI or Carnivore –SSA: go to NCSA Your feedback is valuable! Caution: Construction Ahead

16 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics16 What can/should you register? –Should: your Organization Declares yourself as a publisher with an ID –Should: your Data Collection Users at least know how to access it via a Browser –Can: your existing services Browser-based services: e.g. search page Traditional CGI services Web Services The next level… Implement and register one or more standard services –Cone Search –Simple Image Access –SkyNode –Simple Spectral Access* *standard still in development Persistent Archives: Tools for Federation

17 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics17 Cool Services: Integrating with the VO 1.Register your service at a registry Currently as a generic resource Improved support for non-standard services coming (immediate future: contact NVO project) 2.Integrate support for standard VO formats, schemas FITS and VOTable Standard Data Model schemas (emerging) VOResource, Space-time Coordinates, Spectra 3.Implement Standard Support Interface a standard in development for: Self-description, tracking health and usage

18 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics18 A word about Identifiers… IVOA Identifier: a globally-unique URI identifying a resource Ex: ivo://adil.ncsa/targeted/SIA Required as part of a registered resource description As publisher, you control what it looks like Two components: –Authority ID: e.g. adil.ncsa Defines a namespace for identifiers Owned by a single publishing organization –Resource Key: e.g. targeted/SIA Name for the resource unique within the namespace Encourage re-use of local identifiers

19 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics19 Visits to the Publishing Registries Publishing Registries –STScI/JHU Registry: –NCSA Registration Portal: –Caltech Carnivore: Recommend you stick with one registry –Authority IDs are currently stuck to a single registry Cant do something? Contact us!

20 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics20 Resource Metadata: XML Schema Classes of Resources –Generic Resource –Extensions: e.g. DataCollection, Service, ConeSearch, SimpleImageAccess, SkyNode Organized into separate schemas: –Core resource metadata: VOResource –Various extensions schemas containing specific types Capable of describing… –Data centers, research organizations, missions, observatories –Data collections, archives –VO standard services: Cone Search, Simple Image Access, Simple Spectral Access, SkyNode –Existing Browser/CGI-based services –Web Services

21 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics21 Searching the Registry Available Interfaces: –Keyword Search –Intermediate Interfaces Form-based Under-development e.g. –Advanced SQL/ADQL/XQuery interfaces RegistryURLSearchable?Publishing? STScI/JHU NVO Registry Caltech Carnivorehttp://nvo.caltech.edu:8080/carnivore/Yes NCSA Registration Portal

22 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics22 IVOA Standard Registry Interface IVOA Working Draft: 2 parts –Harvesting: sending descriptions from publishers to searchable registry –Searching Searching –methods keywordSearch(string words, boolean combineByOr) search(ADQLWhere constaints) –Returns a list of VOResource descriptions –Advanced searching with ADQL: Just the where parti.e. search constraints--of ADQL In place of column names, use XPath to VOResource element –Curation/Publisher like %NASA% –Query extensible to any VOResource XML extension –Maps readily to registry implementations based on RDBMS or XML-DB.

23 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics23 Why might a client use the standard search interface? Uniform interface to all VO Registries –Not dependant on a single registry Direct relationship between information you are querying and information you get back. Extensible to any type of resource description Re-use of ADQL Custom interfaces to Registries: Registries can provide extended functionality –More advanced capabilities –Simpler interfaces for specialized purposes Client toolkits can provide simplifying interfaces –Support for ADQL/s –XPath aliases

24 NVO Summer School, Aspen Center for Physics24 What you might use this week STScI or Carnivore Registry portals to search for resources Any of the registration portals to register resources Software for querying registry from an application –Java: see java/dev/nvoregistry –IDL: see idl/VOlib_0.1 ( call_registry.pro ) –Python: see python/PythonVOClientLibrary.html ( VORegistry.py ) –PHP: see in php/web : kwdSearch.php, phpVOlib
