Recommend a process for encouraging astronomical community participation in the development of such enhancements.SHARE The SHARE Charter Town Hall Meeting Oct. Recommend a process for regularly assessing and prioritizing enhancements of this type in the future. Provide a rough road map or order for the implementation of the recommendations made in item 1 and 2. 2001 Jerry Kriss The Deployment of On-The-Fly Reprocessing (OTFR) enables potential new services utilizing the HST archive.

9. Identifying and classifying objects in a single image or a combined set of images. Improvements to the accuracy of the World Coordinate System in the headers of calibrated data products. Providing better quality information for data sets in the archive. 8. 10. 5. 3. 6. Combining spectra from several different observations or from dithered STIS observations. Using the time history of data and calibrations to enhance the reprocessing. Allow users to specify customized parameters to be used when running OTFR to tailor the pipeline calibration to their scientific needs. Page 3 .SHARE Town Hall Meeting Oct. Producing a catalog of objects in a single image or a combined set of images. 7. 3. 2001 Jerry Kriss Ideas for Reprocessing Enhancements 1. Determining photometric redshifts for objects in a region of sky which is imaged in a number of different bands. Creating "data cubes" from dithered long-slit spectroscopic observations. 4. 2. Combining images to produce a wide-field mosaic or deep stacked image.
