As large simulation datasets are being produced by the GRAPE and other
hardware, they will contain increasing amounts of information not
immediately interesting to the simulator, but also to the larger
community of theoretcians and observers.
We argue here that simulation data can be of great interest to a
Virtual Observatory :
- Comparing simulations with simulations
- Fitting observations to simulations
- Providing benchmark cases
- Example 1:
the UITS Starlab Database Project
- Example 2:
a Toy Model (collection of models) for a Virtual Observatory
