The NOAO Data Products Program (DPP) is a new program aimed at identifying scientifically interesting datasets from ground-based O/IR telescopes and making them available to the astronomical community, together with the tools for exploring them. The program coordinates NOAO projects that are data intensive, including the handling, pipeline processing, analysis, and archiving of data. These datasets, and the facilities for mining them, will form a significant component of the resources of the National Virtual Observatory, and will be an important part of NOAO’s participation in that endeavor. In the longer term, this activity will lead to a data management role in the Large-aperture Synoptic Survey Telescope, a facility that will produce one petabyte of imaging data per year.
