Although astronomical archives constitute basic tools for modern Astrophysics as revealed by their intensive usage, it is also true that the efficiency in the information retrieval is seriously limited by the lack of interoperability among them. The Virtual Observatory is a project designed to provide the astronomical community with the data access, research tools and systems, research support, data interoperability standards, data-flow practices and data centre coordination, necessary to enable the exploration of the digital, multi-wavelength universe resident in the astronomical data archives.
The Spanish Virtual Observatory (SVO) officially started in June 2004. Its purpose is to provide an efficient coordination among the different national initiatives in the framework of the Virtual Observatory and to achieve an effective integration of all the expertise in this research domain.
