Innovative Tools Fostered by the HiPS Ecosystem


Over the past 10 years HiPS (Hierarchical Progressive Surveys) has evolved from an experiment led by CDS to an ecosystem supported by more than 20 data centers exposing their own HiPS node. This trend has been pushed by advanced and simple clients (Aladin Desktop, Aladin Lite) or portals (ESASky, ESO Science Portal) and thanks to Hipsgen. Today the HiPS ecosystem gathers 900 HiPS datasets published by 20+ HiPS nodes. We describe a selection of different tools and services that benefit from having a large collection of multi-wavelength datasets available in the same format: hips2fits, on-the-fly generation of RGB tiles from pre-existing HiPS, HiPS as a container for 1d and 2d histograms, CatTiler, computation on the HiPS grid, generation of Spectral Energy Distribution from FITS tiles.
