International Virtual Observatory Alliance
Software with interfaces conforming to this specification will enable
automatic overlay of observational data with a World Coordinate System
obtained from multiple image and spectrum servers or observing tools,
regardless of map scale and for various projections and coordinate
systems. By itself, this is an extraordinarily useful capability, but it
also provides one foundation for interoperability involving more
sophisticated capabilities such as proposal preparation.
