Abstract / Description of output

We describe the AstroGrid Pilot Programme, a set of testbeds conducted during AstroGrid's one-year Phase A study, and intended to complement the science requirements analysis and technology evaluations comprising the remainder of the Phase A programme. We selected a pilot to address an issue of particular relevance to each of AstroGrid's five broad scientific areas, to allow empirical study of many aspects of the general database federation problem and to engage, from the outset, all parts of our user community. The lessons learnt during the course of the Pilot Programme will help define the direction of AstroGrid's Phase B implementation.
