Abstract:
The gravitational wave candidate event database (GraceDB) is a webservice that organizes candidate events from gravitational-wave searches and provides an environment to record information about follow-ups. This document describes the basic features of GraceDB, including its data models, controller methods, and rendering templates. In the advanced detector era, GraceDB is intended to act as a hub for communication between gravitational wave and electromagnetic observers. This imposes several additional requirements on GraceDB which will inform continued development of this service.
