Isdat is a client-server system for accessing scientific data,
primarily developed for and by the Wave Experiment Consortium on the
Cluster satellites. The server part of Isdat has modules to read
various kinds of data, which are then presented in a unified format to
the clients. On the client side, there is a high-level generic browser
client, igr, several
specialized clients and APIs not only for C but also for Matlab, IDL
and Java. This gives a tremendous flexibility for getting data from
various sources (ISDAT servers, which may be spread around the globe)
in a unified way.

ISDAT runs on most Unix systems, including not only Linux, Solaris,
FreeBSD and HP-UX but also MacOsX. It also runs on VMS, and ISDAT
clients are able to run under Cygwin
on MS Windows. ISDAT is distributed as source code, which
after some user configuration is built using Imake. The ISDAT core can
be distributed freely, though some server modules for reading
data from specific instruments can be proprietary. The ISDAT server includes
possibilities for access control.
