Research Data Discovery
Data Central brings together an array of heterogenous astronomical data in one accessible, feature-rich data portal, maximising the scientific return on Australian optical datasets of national significance.
The Data Central Science Platform has revolutionised how astronomical research teams manage projects across the full data lifecycle. Enabling researchers to make key discoveries with their data across multiple domains, Data Central provides instant access to both cutting edge and legacy data across a breadth of national and international facilities and instruments. We provide user-focused exploration alongside complementary cross-matched data to facilitate new scientific discoveries. Users can run analyses, data reduction routines, and publish data to the world, all on a single platform; a crucial step forward in the era of big-data, where large data volumes are no longer manageable on desktop machines.
