Abstract: In the astronomical world, Fabry-Perot (FP) data are very specific. Using a scanning Fabry-Perot, extended line emitting targets can be observed with a large field of view, within a short spectral range (from 5 to 100Å) and with high resolutions (from 1,000 to 20,000). Observation data cubes allow us to derive and to focus mostly on emission line flux maps, velocity maps and velocity dispersion maps. Specific tools are needed to process and analyze FP data and make results available to the community. We present a VO-compliant Information System4 platform dedicated to the 3D FP data. A multi-criteria interface based on SItools 4.0 is available and Cone Search, SIAP, (SIAP2) and Characterization are being implemented. A discussion of “Added value Tools” to be implemented has begun. These might include projection of galaxies at high redshift, Tully Fisher diagrams, etc.
