An opportunity for members of the TDA WG,

The appended Request for Information should be of interest to diverse astronomical institutions, in particular in the time domain.  WorldWide Telescope has been a remarkable project and includes hooks for time domain data sets.  Tools like WWT (few and far between) could be integrated into observatory operations, survey and follow-up observing, data reduction, pipeline processing, and data portals community-wide to elevate astronomical user interfaces to the next level.


PS - This is my first attempt to send an attachment to the list - apologies if further attempts prove necessary.
