The INTEGRAL Science Data Center (ISDC) is designed as an interface between the INTEGRAL data and the user community. Its main task is to receive and process all the INTEGRAL data in order to (1) detect GRBs and other bright transient sources, for alerting the astronomical community and for initiating possible INTEGRAL Target Of Opportunity (TOO) observation, and (2) produce and archive a set of standard data products, and to distribute them to the observers. It is also foreseen to provide help and support to the observers in analyzing INTEGRAL data. The ISDC is funded by a consortium of European and US institutes. It is located in Versoix near Geneva. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
