Access to the 6dFGS databaseAccess to the database is via html forms. The menu driven, SQL and Xmatch forms parse the user's input and submit an SQL (Structured Query Language) request to the database.
For users unfamiliar with SQL the menu driven form provides guidance in constructing a query.

The forms allow the user to select different types of output (HTML, CSV or a TAR saveset of FITS files).
