CSIRO ATNF Data Archives
CSIRO provides access to unprocessed ATNF radio astronomy data taken with the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA), Parkes Radio Telescope, Mopra Radio Telescope and Long Baseline Array (LBA). Data from these facilities are made available through the Australia Telescope Online Archive (ATOA) and through search forms on the CSIRO Data Access Portal.
For ASKAP the CSIRO ASKAP Science Data Archive (CASDA) provides access to data products generated from ASKAP observations after processing the incoming data. The data products include calibrated visibilities for continuum data,images and image cubes, and detection catalogues. ASKAP data access is provided through the CSIRO Data Access Portal and using Virtual Observatory (VO) services.
To get started select the facility or facilities of interest and see the links to archives and documentation in the table below.
