AbstractThe Canadian Astronomy Data Centre (CADC) was established in 1986 by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), through a grant provided by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), as one of three world-wide distribution centres for astronomical data obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). Located at NRC Herzberg in Victoria, BC, the CADC staff consists of professional astronomers and software developers who have developed an abundance of other sophisticated tools to support and enhance the research efforts of Canadian (and international) astronomers. The CADC specializes in data mining, data processing, data distribution and data transferring of very large astronomical datasets. In 2012, the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre (CADC) delivered over 1.6 million individual files, comprising over 117TB of data and served data to roughly 2000 professional astronomers.
