A working interoperability prototype is an important goal for year 1 of
the AVO interoperability Work Area. This prototype aims to federate a
set of archives representative of a variety of techniques (space/ground,
images/spectra, X-ray to radio wavelengths) into the CDS VizieR system.
The target archives for federation are: VLT, NTT, EIS (ESO), HST/ECF,
ISO, XMM (ESA), Wide field UK archives, Jodrell Bank, and Terapix. We
describe the interoperability of some of the federated archives,
highlighting new functionalities of the CDS tools. We also describe how
case by case discussions with archive providers is helping to compile a
set of recommendations for interoperability.
