Popular Search Interface
A new Popular Interface
has been released that allows our users, and especially our visitors
who are not professional astronomers, quick and easy access to the
exciting images and photon event files that are available from the
Chandra Data Archive.
It may be used in two modes, depending on the user's needs and preferences:
- Quick image
This returns a Jpeg image from the (imaging) observation that
scored highest in the search for observations of a particular
object or at a particular position.
- Advanced search
This mode allows the user to specify additional search criteria,
select spectroscopic observations, and ask for all qualifying
observations to be returned.
The search results provides the user with a choice of
qualifying observations as well as different data products: Jpeg
as well as FITS images, event files, bibliographic references,
and other details on the observations.
