Xamin update August 2016

For this Xamin update we have reinstated the Product Explorer for Grid queries and added bibliography table options.

  • The Product Explorer allows users to see and select the kinds of products associated with query results displayed as a grid. Look for the Product Explorer button in the top toolbar of grid table results. Documentation can be found on our Xamin Web Guide
  • Xamin now accepts two new arguments at run time:

       bibbase=xxx

    can be used to point to a table you want to use as your base zzbib table. In principle this can be a user table (but you need to log in separately).

       bibext=xxx

    can be used to point to a table you want to use to supplement the zzbib table. I.e., if you want to use mybib as your base bibliography table use

    http://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/xamin?bibbase=mybib

    This assumes (but does not check) that a table mybib exists.
