Repository for public data sets of scientific interest, hosted on the OSDC.
The data sets below can downloaded over the internet or high performance networks such as Internet2, as well as computed over directly on the OSDC. Currently, the OSDC hosts about 700 TB of data and the plan is to steadily increase this to the petabyte level. If you have suggestions about data that should be included, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) consists of a series of three interlocking imaging and spectroscopic surveys, carried out over an eight-year period with a dedicated 2.5m telescope located at Apache Point Observatory in Southern New Mexico.
