Title VO Data Model - FITS, XML plus NDF: the Whole is More than the Sum of the Parts
Abstract We believe that the coming Virtual Observatory implementations will need to access astronomical data in a more structured, hierarchical way. This paper proposes a way to combine the advantages of FITS and XML to provide this functionality. In addition we believe that the lessons learned by Starlink in developing the HDS and NDF systems will prove valuable.
