Abstract: VOSA (VO Sed Analyzer)1 is a public web-tool developed by the Spanish Virtual Observatory2, and designed to help astronomers to build and analyze Spectral Energy Distributions (SEDs) for many objects at the same time (tested for ∼2000 objects), combining user inputs with Virtual Observatory data. VOSA offers different workflows for stars (and brown dwarfs) and galaxies given that the physics involved is different in many aspects and, thus, the relevant VO , theoretical models, etc are also different. VOSA is in operation since 2008 (Bayo et al. 2008) although several important improvements have been done since then and will be done in the future (mostly taking into account user requests). It has proved to be a useful tool with more than 200 users analyzing more than 165.000 objects (only last year) and around 35 published papers making use of VOSA.
