NEW! Public Access to LRIS Data, and PI Access to ESI Data Now Available: Data Access
Funded by NASA, the Keck Observatory Archive (KOA) is a joint development between the W. M. Keck Observatory (WMKO) located in Waimea, Hawaii and the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute (NExScI) located in Pasadena, California. Currently, KOA archives data taken with HIRES, NIRSPEC, NIRC2, LRIS, KI (Keck Interferometer), MOSFIRE, DEIMOS, and ESI.
The process by which data are archived is as follows:
The physical location of the archive is at NExScI. Both metadata and raw FITS files are transferred via the internet from WMKO to NExScI, and are available through a User Interface within hours of the end of observations. Both the data files and the metadata are subject to a proprietary period policy. During the proprietary period, program PIs will be able to access their data via a user login/password protected site. The data are released to the public upon expiration of the proprietary period.
