VisIVO and ViaLactea Science Gateways

The VisIVO Science Gateway aims to create an astrophysical portal based on the generic-purpose gUSE/WS-PGRADE portal family to access VisIVO software tools. It has been developed within the framework of the EU FP7 Sci-Bus Project.

The ViaLactea Science Gateway operates as a central workbench for the VIALACTEA community in order to allow astronomers to process the new-generation surveys (from Infrared to Radio) of the Galactic Plane to build and deliver a quantitative 3D model of our Milky Way Galaxy. The adopted agile software development process allowed to fulfill the community needs in terms of required workflows and underlying resource monitoring. The science gateway has been developed in the context of the EU FP7 VIALACTEA Project.
