We are pleased to announce the beta version of AAO Data Central version 1.5. We invite all ASA members and collaborators to test the new features of the system at https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/dheyCJyp0qh1EQ7PSVdO3r?domain=datacentral.aao.gov.au <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/ZW7QCK1qJZtB5rj0TvT2AS?domain=datacentral.aao.gov.au>.
These features include:
An image cutout tool <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/3kmOCL7rK8tmnYJ5HPg8_Z?domain=datacentral.aao.gov.au>, currently accessing data from the GAMA Panchromatic Data Release and DEVILS Data Release 0.
A cone search tool <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/8s7ICMwvLQTR46QGsWa-1G?domain=datacentral.aao.gov.au>
A query tool <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/P87gCNLwM9iEmM21irQ0Zc?domain=datacentral.aao.gov.au>
A Content Management System for survey teams
A survey team data cloud
The first three tools can be accessed without logging in to Data Central. Alternatively, you can log in with your AAO/Lens account, which will allow you track your service history and retrieve previous queries and cutouts, and edit survey team pages (please contact your survey team PI to gain access).
Additionally, Data Central provides a TAP (Table Access Protocol) service, for use with TOPCAT, Aladin and similar VO-compliant tools. To access the TAP service in e.g. TOPCAT, select the TAP option from the VO menu and under Selected TAP service enter https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/iT6WCOMxNyt0m26oi5mVDq?domain=datacentral.aao.gov.au <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/iT6WCOMxNyt0m26oi5mVDq?domain=datacentral.aao.gov.au> and click Use Service. Other IVOA services will be added in the coming weeks.
Known issues are currently documented on the bug report page <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/p1gaCP7yOZtoE57qiBJFLS?domain=datacentral.aao.gov.au>, if you spot any additional issues please submit a report. 
Information for survey team members
You may wish to update the meta-data surrounding the data products hosted at Data Central. Please contact the survey PI to suggest changes.
