Abstract: The CDS has developed and validated new methods to generate, publish and display huge astronomical image data cubes based on the Hierarchical Progressive Survey (HiPS) framework. Data cubes with two spatial dimensions and an additional spectral or temporal dimension can be mapped onto HEALPix grids at different resolutions, which supports zooming and panning of the data across the sky with the ability to explore the third dimension of the cube. These methods are successfully applied to different sorts of cube data, and surveys of cube data.
