NASA uses a format called AVM (Astronomical Visualization Metadata) to embed astronomical data directly into images. We scraped over one hundred massive images taken from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and extracted the AVM data from those images. (This was done using a rake task running in the background that almost killed our poor server during the competition.) We present an interface to search that image data here, in both a Simple search format and an Advanced search format.
Try out our Simple search by searching for 'infrared'. You should get many results. Then try our Advanced search by searching for images the Subject.Category is "B.3.1.7" and the Title contains "Dust" and you should get just one result. Click on a result to get details on that image.Visit Homepage
