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.
