VO Client Release – Access the VO from Your Desktop

Access the VO from your desktop.

The US Virtual Astronomical Observatory (VAO) has released VOClient – a software package that enables direct access to services in the VO from a Unix terminal or scripting environment. The VOClient command-line tools allow you to discover archives and catalogs through queries to the VAO Registry, search-for and download images, spectra, and catalogs, and interoperate with other VO-compatible tools. These tools can be used to create customized access to VO services, new VO tools or enhancements to existing software by adding VO capabilities.
