     11  An identifier of the observatory, space platform, or network of 
     12observatories (or spacecraft) from which the data originate.  In the 
     13case of networks such as GONG or CLUSTER, the particular observatory 
     14site or spacecraft may be identified by Instrument if each member is 
     15single-instrument.  In the case of multi-instrument multi-site networks, 
     16another Data Source search parameter (Site or Instance or Platform or 
     17Network) may be required.  Note that network is used in the sense of 
     18functionally identical instruments deployed in different locations, 
     19and not coordinated data collections from distinct instruments, such 
     20as the H-alpha Network; that is considered a Provider. 
     21The recognized values are those in the data registry, and the list is 
     22subject to modification whenever the data registry is modified.

     55  type: ''menu''[[BR]] 
     56  FITS keyword: ''INSTRUMT'' 
     57 
     58  For multi-instrument space observatories, an identifier of the 
     59particular instrument from which the data originate.  For observatories, 
     60the Instrument may refer to a particular telescope or to one of multiple 
     61standard configurations of telescope plus detectors. 
     62For the list of instruments registered, consult the 
     63'''[http://vso1.nascom.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/show_details?keyword=INSTRUMENT Registry]'''..

     66==== Provider ==== 
     67 
     68 
     69  type: ''menu'' 
     70 
     71  The identifier of the data archive providing search and retrieval 
     72functions for the data in question.  The same data may of course be 
     73mirrored at two or more archives.  Since the provider id is at least 
     74implicit in a data registry, this just means that the same data set 
     75would appear in multiple registries.  Some data providers may be 
     76''virtual,'' that is the query (but not the archive and distribution) 
     77services may be handled by other servers with access to their database 
     78information as proxies.
