Beech, Guy (2016) The Benefits of Using XML Technologies in Astronomical Data Retrieval and Interpretation. In: Proceedings of the 2016 conference on Big Data from Space (BiDS’16). Publications Office of the European Union, Joint Research Centre, pp. 268-271. ISBN 978-92-79-56980-7

This paper describes a solution found during recent research that could provide improvements in the efficiency, reliability and cost of retrieving stored astronomical data. This solution uses XML Technologies in showing that when querying a variety of astronomical data sources a standardised data structure can be output into an XML query results Document. This paper shows the astronomical XMLSchema that has been partially developed in conjunction with simple custom supporting system software. It also discusses briefly possible future implications.
