13th December 2016 TAP examples with STILTS scripts
A STILTS script is now available for all query examples provided along the TAP service.

From the Gaia DR1, the ARI's TAP service has a special resource providing a list of query examples. This list is visible and usable in TOPCAT as described in the help page: "How to get ADQL examples in TOPCAT?" .

TOPCAT is developed together with a derived command line tool of the same author: STILTS . Thanks to this tool, you can easily reproduce queries, crossmatches, plots and anything you do in TOPCAT with just a single script file.

So, now, all examples provided by the TAP service are now associated with a STILTS script that you can download, and execute in order to easily and quickly reproduce the example and its figure(s). Do not hesitate to take inspiration from these scripts to fulfill your own use-cases.

26th August 2016 TAP Upload enabled in the Web interface
A new feature in the Web interface for TAP queries.

The TAP Web interface has now a new feature: the ability to upload one or several table when submitting an ADQL query.

However, there are some limitations you should be aware of:

  • The TAP protocol supports ONLY the VOTable format for uploaded tables. The Web form has then the same constraint.
  • When selecting a file, you will be asked a table name. This table name must start with a latin letter ({aA-zZ}) and may be followed only by an underscore (_), another latin letter ({aA-zZ}) or a digit ({0-9}).
  • There is no limit on the number of tables you can submit. However, you are limited on the size of the whole requests (2MB) and on the total number of rows (see the Capabilities of the TAP service).

9th August 2016 Rehearsal Gaia data ready for testing
The rehearsal Gaia data are simulated data aiming to help testing Gaia data access services before the real Gaia data release.

The rehearsal Gaia data for the first release are now accessible through the ARI's Gaia services. These data are simulated just for test purpose. Thus, you can see how services provided by ARI work and how you could use them for your own scientific purpose.
