Annotations service released

Posted by CDS admin on 02 March 2010 08:56 CET

The CDS team is proud to open a new service, allowing you to add
annotations to SIMBAD objects.
SIMBAD pages showing informations for individual objects will
now contain a link at the bottom, allowing you to add informations,
remarks or request modifications from CDS staff for this object.
In order to use this feature, you will need to register as a
user of CDS services. Detailed instructions are available here :
http://cdsannotations.u-strasbg.fr/annotations/doc/quickstart.html.

Note that the registration will provide access to more new CDS
features in the future.

This new annotation system is in its starting phase, and might
need a little tuning in its early days. It is not intended to
supersede email support via question@simbad, but to improve the
quality of SIMBAD contents and the level of interaction between
CDS staff and SIMBAD users.
