The SuperCOSMOS Science Archive is an implementation of the
legacy SuperCOSMOS Sky Survey flat-file data in
Windows/SQL Server as opposed to
the flat-file system accessible via the SSS web interface.
It consists of data from digitised sky survey plates taken with the UK Schmidt
telescope (UKST), the ESO Schmidt, and the Palomar Schmidt.
The data is organised in schemas, which include tables, views, and constraints.
