The aim of this doctoral research project is to develop contemporary data management solutions for the management and utilization of astronomy data. One key objective is to define an XMLSchema and ontologies catering for the whole scope of AstroInformatics data, which are accepted for use by the astronomical research and industry sectors.
This will involve discussions with various astronomical bodies to ascertain their opinions and needs and also the creation of new custom software within which to apply the XMLSchema and Ontologies, one outcome of which is to be the demonstration of intelligent automatic tasking of telescopes and other data collectors.
Another key objective is to develop a set of tools that make use of the schema and ontologies and which will support researchers in capturing, storing, exchanging and exploring available astronomy data.
