Cross-match API released

Posted by Thomas Boch on 30 January 2013 15:02 CET

The CDS is releasing today the first version of the API allowing one to access programmatically its cross-match service. Through HTTP calls, any script or program can submit a list of positions (up to 2 million positions) and look for counterparts in one of the 10,000+ VizieR tables.

Full documentation is available at http://cdsxmatch.u-strasbg.fr/xmatch/doc/cross-match-API.html, along with some usage examples in several languages (shell script, Python, Ruby, Java).
Your comments, questions or feedback are welcome and can be sent to cds-question@unistra.fr
