Data Services Group & Computing (Mark L / David H)
Organizing SW Development Meeting - visualization analysis of data cubes, to be tied in with ALMA Development Proposal CfP. SOC telecon next week.
Pipeline/Archive Group discussions: ObsUnitSets will correspond approximately to science goals (document to be completed soon by L. Davis). Only two levels of ObsUnitSet will contain data, a bottom level and a group level that will group together observations made with different arrays/configurations but with the same correlator setups and pointing.
Early Science delivery plans being developed, will likely involve users obtaining their data products from the ARCs via an autheticated ftp process.
ideas on improving user registration welcome - telecon on Thursday led by S. Leon of the JAO
Many boxes downstairs for use on the pipeline; available for use over next year. Fast storage nodes and disks also on order
