Abstract: VizieR, the database which collects thousands of astronomical catalogues and tables, was recently improved and offers now more interactions with users and external applications. The new capabilities include essentially a possibility of searching by content (get tables containing user-defined types of quantities), an annotation service, a connection to the CDS portal (with dedicated space to store VizieR results to reuse them), tools to correlate tables of catalogs (cross-match), and a better integration in the framework of the Virtual Observatory.
