User Information Keywords

The VSO provides a number of keywords to describe information required by Data Providers to complete a request for Data Products.

For the most recent list of User Information Keywords, please see

As of the time of this writing, the keywords in use are as follows:

EMAIL

The e-mail address of the person requesting the data to be transfered. This is typically used to notify the requestor of completion or problems, or to coordinate cost recovery and other such details. Some Data Providers may use this or other information to identify unique users to their site to justify their budget. Please see our notes regarding Privacy Policies.
