The MISAO project enables to make the most of information buried
Furthermore, in addition to the problems and solutions at the four cases
described in the previous section, it is expected to bring various
effects such as:
- Any images, such as those which some has taken arbitrarily without
purpose, can be utilized by examining with the software or registering
to the database. Only taking some images to kill time can be a part of
sky survey and may bring discovery of new objects. Therefore more
people are expected to get interested in surver.
- The world wide collaboration brings very wide sky survey in space
and time and in methods for observations, which is hard to do at only
one observatory indivisually.
- An object which required observations for a long period, such as
variable stars, also can be the target.
- Anyone, including children, can check and see what kind of
astronomical objects are in their own image. It brings educational and
enlightening effects. The users can feel expectation that some new
objects may buried in their any images and they can discover the
objects, and they can also feel the sense of solidarity in the sky
survey by registering their own images to the database.
In the near future, the network generation comes.
Then enormous images produced with CCD cameras become shared globally on
Under such a situation, discovery and traking of astronomical objects
also becomes as a world wide collaboration naturally.
This project gropes for how the sky survey should be in the near future.
