The book is the first thorough overview of the first important steps to develop a worldwide virtual observatory so that, in the future, it could be easier to "dial-up" a part of the sky than wait many months to access a telescope. The articles in this book present details on the status of the first efforts to develop a standardized framework for the virtual observatory, including steps towards completion and deployment of technical infrastructure, uptake by data providers worldwide, and utilization by the scientific community.

Knowledge Discovery in Big Data from Astronomy and Earth Observation: Astrogeoinformatics bridges the gap between astronomy and geoscience in the context of applications, techniques and key principles of big data. Machine learning and parallel computing are increasingly becoming cross-disciplinary as the phenomena of Big Data is becoming common place. This book provides insight into the common workflows and data science tools used for big data in astronomy and geoscience. After establishing similarity in data gathering, pre-processing and handling, the data science aspects are illustrated in the context of both fields. Software, hardware and algorithms of big data are addressed. Finally, the book offers insight into the emerging science which combines data and expertise from both fields in studying the effect of cosmos on the earth and its inhabitants.

These proceedings from the May 2006 conference focus on the present status and the future of standardization and calibration of these fields, including the production process for those standards and the construction and use of calibration apparatus. Topics include the basic concepts of standardization; the construction, calibration and maintenance of photometric systems; sky surveys in photometry; standardization of spectrophotometry; spectrophotometric and photometric absolute flux calibrations; standardization for the infrared; standardization of polarimetry; synthetic data and models; reduction techniques, procedures and methods; standardization of unusual objects such as supernovae and variable stars; and recommendations for the future. The editors have provided object, subject and author indices and have dedicated this volume to Arlo U. Landolt in commemoration of his life's work.
