Abstract: The Virtual Observatory (VO) Registry is a comprehensive directory of astronomical services maintained collaboratively by major data centers across the globe. Until now, the API to the Registry as used by clients and users relied on several outdated standards, and has interoperability issues with more advanced queries. With RegTAP, there is now a relational schema exposed via the VO's Table Access Protocol as implemented by many clients, and several compliant services already exist. While many users will just use UIs operating RegTAP , both advanced users and client authors will want to directly operate the API. This paper provides an overview of RegTAP.
