Herschel User Provided Data Products
The Herschel Science Archive contains products obtained by processing
the observations data through an automatic processing pipeline. This
corrects well a number of instrumental artifacts in an automatic fashion.
The final products can, however, be significantly improved by processing them
further, e.g. by means of the interactive analysis software tools available
within HIPE or with the help of other external tools and/or user contributed software.
The resulting products are called Highly Processed Data Products (HPDPs).
In a broader sense this definition includes catalogues and atlases.
In the future, the Herschel Science Archive is expected to be enhanced
with the functionality for continuous ingestion of new user provided
data products, catalogues and atlases, in the form of HPDPs.
In particular, and as agreed at the time of submission of the Key Programme
observing proposals, KP consortia are committed to deliver to the HSC
the User Provided Data Products corresponding to the data obtained as part
of the Science Demonstration Phase. In addition, on a best effort basis,
they are also expected to continue contributing with additional User Provided
Data Products corresponding to the results obtained as part of their
core programmes as they become published in the refereed literature.
For the moment, this web page is intended to play the role of a User Provided
Data Products repository by providing links to those external sites (mostly
via ftp repositories hosted by the consortia delivering the data) containing
data generated by different projects (and associated documentation),
that may eventually be ingested into the Herschel Science Archive.

The table below provides access to the currently available User Provided Data Products sorted by release date:
Basic guidelines on how to provide your user provided data products, catalogues and atlases are provided in the document "Herschel Data Products Contributor's Guide".
Please contact the Herschel Science Centre Helpdesk if you have any question or if you need further assistance on how to deliver your User Provided Data Products. Feedback and comments related to the contents of this web page are welcome.
