(P1.10) Data Central for Survey Teams

Data Central is a virtual observatory service designed for use by astronomers and survey teams. It is a central repository for data that provides long term availability, data security and IVOA compliance. We are now ready to offer new services to enable the smooth running of astronomical surveys. We introduce these services here, including: a survey team data cloud, which allows teams to move data quickly and easily from the telescope to the desktop; Document Central, a content management system which allows teams to produce detailed documentation for both public and private consumption; and private team data access, so that teams can query and manage data that are not yet ready for public release. We will present a case study of the DEVILS survey team, who have been running their survey through system since December 2017.
