User Interfaces


There are three separate user interfaces to the SDSS EDR, as shown in Figure 3.

We expect that typical users interested in extracting subsets of our imaging catalog based on position, flux, and colors, will find the MAST interface to the skyServer most useful. Sophisticated queries on flags and algebraic combinations of parameters are best done with the SDSS Query Tool (sdssQT). Users who wish to download atlas images, corrected frames, or spectra, should do so with the MAST interface to the data archive server.
