CHARA Data Policy
Data from the CHARA Array is made public after an 18-month proprietary period with the following exceptions:
Data obtained for a graduate student’s thesis work.
Data that are part of a long-term survey.
We are building a centralized archive for all CHARA data at the Georgia State University Data Center. Currently, we do not have a public-facing database for the archive, so requests for CHARA data should be directed to:
Plans for Future Data Access
We are in the process of developing our own public-facing database for the CHARA archive as well as getting our archive data accessible using the JMMC Optical Interferometry Database("http://oidb.jmmc.fr/index.html"). Below is our intended timeline of implementation (dates are subject to change):
Fall 2018 – Observing Logs on JMMC OIDB.
Spring/Fall 2019 – Reduced data accessible via the OIDB.
Fall 2020 – Public-facing CHARA database built.
