Abstract: The NASA Astrophysics Data Facility has developed several new tools to facilitate the browsing and visualization of astronomical catalog and journal table data at the Astronomical Data Center (ADC), and to find associated observational data at various data archives. The ADC Viewer allows users to select, cull, and manipulate ADC catalogs and journal tables, and display them in a plotting tool called Catseye. IMPReSS is a tool that displays aperture silhouettes within a specified sky region of a variety of space-based missions, and then links directly to the archived data held at external sites. All three tools are interoperable with other astronomical resources.
