The LOFAR core, on your desktop

Submitter: George Heald
Description: Pick a random astronomer, and they're likely to be carrying a Mac laptop. With the newly released upgrade (called Mavericks) to the operating system, there is now a map-browsing application built in. Of course the first thing a LOFAR aficionado might do is zoom in to the Exloo area! As in bing, the core area looks great. Now you don't have to remember how to get there in your web browser ...

Also check out WSRT, where you can easily tell which of the antennas has been used for the Digestif system.
