About SoG

SoG -- Son of GAIA -- is an extension of ESO JSkycat which can display our new HDX/NDX format, as well as FITS and NDF images.

Using web-service interfaces it can be remotely controlled and used to display images (as it currently does from Starlink Treeview). In the fullness of time it is expected to provide similar features to GAIA (but working within the Grid).

The following image shows it displaying an image of the WMAP measurements and plotting an astrometric grid overlay.

This second image shows it performing a simple aperture photometry measurement, but with a twist. The actual measurements are performed by a "web-service", which could in principle be on another machine.

Obtaining a version

SoG is part of the STARJAVA collection which can be obtained at the Starlink Software Store.
