New WISE Mission Catalog of Entire Infrared Sky

The Wide Field Infrared Survey (WISE) has released All-Sky catalog and image data sets. The image discovery and mosaic services make use of VOInventory, an indexing scheme optimized for fast access to large image data sets. VOInventory, developed by the VAO, also underpins the Spitzer Space Telescope Heritage Archive.  The WISE mosaic service uses the Montage image mosaic engine, built specifically for the Virtual Observatory.

You can read more about the catalog release in the NASA JPL press release.
