Centre d'expertise régionale sur les données Astronomie/Astrophysique de l'INSU

The OVGSO (Observatoire Virtuel du Grand Sud-Ouest) is one of the six french Astrophysical Data Center recognised by INSU (Institut National des Sciences de l’Univers) since 2013.

It aims at providing a common environment for all the Astrophysical researches, based on observed/theoretical/modelled data access and tools interoperability.

  • Planetary plasmas (CDPP: French national data centre for natural plasmas of the Solar System)
  • Interstellar medium (CASSIS: free interactive spectrum analyser, CADE: Analysis Center for Extended Data, KIDA: database of kinetic data of interest for astro- chemical studies)
  • Stellar spectra (PolarBase: database of high resolution spectropolarimetric stellar observations, Pollux: stellar spectra database proposing access to theoretical data)
  • High energy astrophysics (XMM-SSC: XMM-Newton Survey Science Centre)
