CSCview is a graphical user interface to the Chandra Source Catalog. The interface uses a Java applet which accesses the catalog through a middle-tier Java EE application server. A tabbed interface allows the user to navigate through the main functions of the application: selecting from a list of catalog versions, creating a query, displaying the results, and downloading products. The application includes other features, such as a persistent set of user preferences and a guided help screen. CSCview had its initial release in 2009 and is being updated to include new features and to accommodate evolving requirements.
