35  This specification defines a simple query protocol, named Simple Cone Search (SCS or simply cone search hereafter), for retrieving records from a catalog of astronomical sources. The query describes a sky position and an angular distance, defining a cone on the sky. The response returns a list of astronomical sources from the catalog whose positions lie within the cone, formatted as a VOTable. This version aims essentially at aligning this specification with the Data Access Layer (DAL) landscape at the time of writing.  This specification defines a simple query protocol, named Simple Cone

84  This specification describes how a provider of an astronomical source catalog can publish that catalog to the Virtual Observatory in such a way that a simple cone search can be done. The data remains in the control of the data provider, served through a web server to the world, but the query profile and response profile are carefully controlled, as described below. It is intended that setting up this web service be simple enough that data providers will not have to spend too much time on it (their funding to support such services is typically small). At the same time, the service implementation and the data it provides can serve as a basis for more sophisticated tools.  This specification describes how a provider of an astronomical source
