Abstract

This paper describes the services available at the NASA/IPAC Infrared Science Archive (IRSA). Currently there are nearly 250,000 data requests a month, taking advantage of IRSA's data repository which includes 660 million sources (60 catalogs), 10 million images (22 image sets; 10.4 TB) and over 30,000 spectra (7 spectroscopic datasets). These data are the science products of: The Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS), The Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS), The Midcourse Space Experiment (MSX), The Submillimeter Wave Astronomy Satellite (SWAS), The Infrared Space Observatory (ISO), The Infrared Telescope in Space (IRTS), The Spitzer First Look Survey (FLS), Spitzer Legacy & Ancillary data, Spitzer Reserved Observations (ROC) and the Spitzer Space Telescope data. IRSA is also seamlessly interoperable with ten remote archives and services: GOODS, ISO, MAST, VizieR, DSS, NVSS, FIRST, HEASARC, NED and JPL, which help expand the available dataset wavelength range from X-ray to radio. The majority of IRSA's image collections are Simple Image Access (SIA) compliant and are available through the Virtual Observatory (VO) data mining tools. The IRSA demo includes IRSA's ¯ve main services: inventory service RADAR, catalog query service Gator, data fusion service OASIS, general search service for complex data collections Atlas, and IRSA's 2MASS Image data access services. IRSA's website is http://irsa.ipac.caltech.edu.
