CosmoSim provides access to the cosmological data via the SQL database and via direkt download.
This chapter explains how the database can be accessed. There are basically two different ways:
The Query form is very useful for users, who first want to get a feeling for the possibilities the database can provide. For more advanced queries, users usually sooner or later want to interact with the database using scripts from the command line. This is possible by using the UWS interface.
It is also possible to send your data to virtual observatory tools like Topcat, as described in section Topcat and SAMP.
Please see the list of the topics:
- Query Form
- Scripted access (UWS)
- Topcat and SAMP
- Job Queue
- PaQu: Parallel Queries for the User
- PaQu: Parallel Queries for the Techie
- PaQu issues
- Private user database
Part of the data is accessible as direkt download. Please keep in mind that the complete and verified set of the data is to be found in the database, see Disclaimer. However we provide direkt download links for the Rockstar data and plan to add Galaxie data in the near future.
