Abstract: The Centro de Estudios de Física del Cosmos de Aragón (CEFCA) is carrying out two large area multiband photometric sky surveys, J-PLUS and J-PAS, from the Observatorio Astrofísico de Javalambre (OAJ, Teruel, Spain) covering the entire optical spectrum using narrow and broad band filters. As an effort to make the data public, we offer Virtual Observatory (VO) compliant services to make the access to the data more versatile through the multiple VO compliant existent tools. For example, catalogues are offered through TAP protocol and images can be searched and downloaded using the SIAP protocol. This contribution summarizes why we decided to make our own implementation, the process we followed to choose which services to implement according to the kind of data generated by the survey, why Python and PostgreSQL were chosen and, finally, the lessons learned.
