MODEST Working Group 6:
Data Structures

The data structures used in the codes are important in order for different modules to properly exchange and interpret as much of their information as possible. The current activity is on defining a framework so we agree on nomenclature and contents of the data, as depicted in the figure to the right. We don't need to come up with a FITS like standard, although something like that would be nice (the new VOTable comes to mind here).
