Interactive Submission of Data to be Published in VizieR

Abstract : We present the new interactive submission interface for VizieR and the VizieR associated data service (Landais (2016)). The step by step process supports description of tables and the generation of the CDS standard ReadMe description. This interface also guides authors through a workflow that allows them to describe their data in a standard way so that it can be integrated into the VizieR database (Ochsenbein et al. (2000)) and be published via Virtual Observatory protocols. The VizieR associated data service is a recent addition to the CDS VizieR service. It enables the publication of data associated to papers, such as spectra, images and time series. The interface automatically proposes a mapping of the FITS headers to the IVOA ObsCore meta-data standard (Tody et al. (2011)), which can be modified and validated by the authors. The process can be done in an asynchronous mode and is therefore suited to potentially large collections of FITS resources, and is instantaneous for small data sets.The associated data service today comprises of millions of associated data files. We describe the capabilities of the submission interface, and the lessons learned from initial tests by authors/beta-testers.
