Efficient and fast access to the detector description of the ATLAS experiment is needed for many tasks, at different steps of the data chain: from detector development to reconstruction, from simulation to data visualization. Until now, the detector description was only accessible through dedicated services integrated into the experiment’s software framework, or by the use of external applications. In this work, we explore the possibility of using a web access-based conditions database to store and serve the detector description, aiming at a simplification of the software architecture of the experiment and a reduction in the number of software packages to be maintained.
