ROSAT ANONYMOUS FTP MAP

This is a map of the ROSAT anonymous-FTP area. To access the data shown here, ftp to legacy.gsfc.nasa.gov and log in as "anonymous"; type cd rosat to reach the main ROSAT area. The contents of the main level are shown in the left-most column of the chart below, with subsequent sub-directory contents shown to the right. For example, the "abstracts" directory given in the first column has contents "README, abs_ao1.Z, abs_ao2.Z, ...", etc., as given in column 2. Names with a "/" at the end denote sub-directories; all other names represent single files. Sub-directory contents were listed only if they contained another sub-directory, in the interests of saving space.
