The Oracle databases will reside on SUN computers at the DRAF, and EAF. The C2 version will be administered by a Data Analysis Scientist at the EAF, and the C1 version by a counterpart at the DRAF. A copy of C2 will be available at DRAF, and a copy of C1 at EAF. Electronic access to both will be available at the Italian and Swiss Data Analysis Facilities. It is anticipated that investigators who are not at one of the sites above will be able to remotely log in to one of them to access the database. The UVCS project recommends that SAO become a node on the Space Physics Data System to provide convenient access to the database for outside users (TBC).
Oracle will make it possible to find observations for specified ranges of the fields listed in the database, though some searches will be more efficient than others. We expect that observation date, pointing (roll and distance from sun center) and observing program will be the most commonly used search parameters, and the database will be indexed to make these searches rapid. Other fields will include wavelength range and type of target. Oracle will permit searches for observations which simultaneously match parameter ranges for two fields.
