Abstract: As astronomical data sets continue to grow in size, the challenges involved in data access and visualization increase in complexity. Obtaining entire data sets is time consuming, awkward and in many cases even impractical. Furthermore, visualization of data is traditionally accomplished off-line, requiring specialized software that is often operating system or library dependent and cannot be easily installed everywhere. In this paper we describe two interactive web-based tools we implemented for accessing and visualizing multidimensional FITS data. The intent in offering on-line tools is to provide astronomers with easy access to data from any computer with a modern web browser. The described tools were developed by the CyberSKA project and are accessible on its web portal.
