               What’s new in Browse
• Swift tables and data
• Tabbed results (in development, demo)
• Keyword search interface (demo)
    – Simple but powerful query interface
• Enhanced text interface
    – Retains most capabilities of default HTML table display but is
      much faster.
• Filtering of data products
    – Select only files matching template
• Special Swift interface
• Improved internal plotting
• Links to Hera (demo)

                      Browse
                      (and anything else you would like to see)

                      Tabbed Output
• Breaks down Browse output into manageable
  chunks.
    – Different functions available on different tabs
    – Missions and tables conveniently organized
• Shopping cart paradigm for data product
  retrieval
    – Users select products associated with each table,
      then go to retrieval form.
• Still under development, suggestions very
  welcome!

          Keyword Search Interface

• Google-esque style search: Users enter text describing
  what they want and Browse tries to find it.
• Distinguishes times, positions, formats, table selection
  keywords automatically.
• Supports search by position, time or any parameter.
• Allows selection of tables by name, mission, regime, ...
    – Tables selected by matching keywords.
• Uses JavaScript and AJAX to give users feedback as
  they are entering information.

                  Possible next steps

• User defined samples
• Correlations with large external catalogs (e.g.,
  SDSS, Galex)
    – Probably using VO protocols
• Automated notifications for new observations
• VO access to HEASARC images and spectra
• ...
