Abstract: This paper describes the data mining, catalog-cross comparison, and visualization services available at the Infrared Science Archive (IRSA), NASA's archive node for infrared astronomy data. IRSA is a living archive, which maintains contemporary datasets and continuously develops services to exploit these datasets. Over the past three years, IRSA has devoted most of its resources to support the requirements of the massive 2MASS survey datasets. Given the high volumes of 2MASS data, the services and infrastructure supporting them provide insight in understanding how a future NVO may operate.
