Talk Tuesday


Mr Thomas Boch (CDS - Observatoire de Strasbourg)


I will present MOC (Multi Order Coverage maps), a Virtual Observatory standard allowing one to describe and compare spatial coverage of astronomical datasets.

After presenting the MOC format (based on HEALPix tessellation), I will show some practical applications of MOC usage, using the MOCPy library developed at CDS.
