You may have noticed that the SkyView homepage has changed. We wanted to add a new feature and decided it was time for a little re-arranging.
The new feature is a table listing SkyView local and remote surveys and their current availability status. Most survey data used for image generation are stored locally on SkyView systems but when images are generated from surveys listed in this table the data are transferred from remote servers. From time to time data availability (both local and remote) is interrupted and image queries fail. We monitor these remote server connections throughout the day. If there are connection issues we update the table and try to notify our contacts at the appropriate institution as soon as possible.
