- O/IR System
Gemini science data were initially stored in the GSA, operated by the Canadian Astronomy Data Center (CADC). From November 2015, all data are instead stored in, and accessed via, the Gemini Observatory Archive, which is operated by the Observatory.
All Gemini data has been transferred into the new archive. However, user accounts and program registrations are not transferable - you will need to create an account on the new archive and register any programs from which you would like to download proprietary data with that new account.
Unlike the GSA, the GOA does not have the concept of "PI packages". PIs simply search for and download their data (and optionally the associated calibrations) by project ID using the main search form.
