Together, the LIGO and Virgo gravitational-wave detectors
provide open data via the
Gravitational Wave Open Science Center (GWOSC). The GWOSC also provides a
range of software tools that can be used in accessing the data, as well as
training materials to help users get started.
AHEAD2020 provides resources dedicated
to supporting development of the GWOSC, with an important component of the
project devoted to facilitating access to GWOSC data and materials.
This portal, which will be updated and evolve as AHEAD2020
progresses, has been set up to assist with this process.

Exploring the data
There are lots of different applications already available
for use in exploring gravitational-wave data. Have a look at
this GWOSC page for
The event portal
The GWOSC makes finding information relating to
gravitation-wave events an straightforward process, by storing information
about the events in a dedicated database and providing an easy-to-use
interface, which allows users to search and filter results.
Virgo, LIGO Hanford, LIGO Livingston and KAGRA record
reports in their Logbooks, providing technical information relating to the
latest work and upgrades carried out on the interferometers.
