From data integration to information integration

Astronomy involves observations made at different wavelengths, including visible light, infra red, radio waves, X rays, and gamma rays. Integrating data generated by observations at different wavelengths to provide a composite understanding of objects such as galaxies, spanning the whole electromagnetic spectrum, is particularly important for large space and ground based observation projects. Such projects to integrate data at different wavelengths have been undertaken by NASA, by ESA, and by observatories and research organizations, in recent years, and these have identified issues and concerns that can be solved with improved methods.

Within this section, the Network will also look at new ways of classifying large data collections, and deciding which data is worth storing in the very long term, as it is increasingly impossible to keep everything.
