Aladin Lite: Lightweight sky atlas for browsers

Abstract: Aladin Lite is a lightweight version of the <a href="">Aladin</a> tool, running in the browser and geared towards simple visualization of a sky region. It allows visualization of image surveys (JPEG multi-resolution HEALPix all-sky surveys) and permits superimposing tabular (VOTable) and footprints (STC-S) data. Aladin Lite is powered by HTML5 canvas technology and is easily embeddable on any web page and can also be controlled through a Javacript API.
