The Rainbow Cosmological Surveys database, operated by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM), partnered with the University of California Observatories at Santa Cruz (UCO/Lick,UCSC), is now using Google Maps to navigate through the Universe. The new Rainbow Sky Maps offer the possibility to see the deepest images of the Universe, and access all the information about the most distant galaxies known.
The Rainbow database is a compilation of astronomical data obtained by the largest extragalactic surveys, such as GOODS, CANDELS or SHARDS, using some of the most powerful telescopes, such as Hubble, Spitzer, Herschel and GTC.
During the last 29 June - 3 July 2009, GUAIX member Jesús Gallego attended to the VIIth International Marseille Cosmology Conference "HARVESTING THE DESERT: THE UNIVERSE BETWEEN REDSHIFT 1 AND 3" where he had the opportunity of meeting his IAC collabortors and most of the teams that work on galaxy evolution.
The last 15 to 17 December 2008 the AEGIS collaboration meet at Lick Observatory, University of California, Santa Cruz. J. Gallego and R. Guzmán were nominated as "core" members and P.G. Pérez-González was nominated as a "regular" member. GUAIX is the only spanish group represented in the AEGIS core.
UCM was selected to host the AEGIS meeting in december 2009.
Jesús Gallego (SOC member), Pablo G. Pérez-González, Jaime Izquierdo and Jaime Zamorano enjoyed both science and beach at Martinique during the "When the Universe formed stars" meeting in Pointe du Bout (Martinique, France). They gave two talks and showed two posters of their work on the evolution of Star Forming Galaxies.

G. Barro and the GUAIX team developed a highly interactive queryable database including all the public data available for the CDFS.
The database was produced to be used by the GOYA research team. It was originally presented during the GOYA meeting at Miami in June 2006.
