VIM is a tool for researching multiple sky positions simultaneously.
Each source becomes a row in a table, with catalog, image cutouts, and spectral information.
This information is drawn from all the published surveys of the astronomical literature.

You can start using VIM in four ways:
  • Paste comma-separated text (RA, Dec, ID) under Load Sky Positions / from Text
  • Copy the URL for an example table, then do Load Sky Positions / from link to VOTable
  • View the example workbenches. Sort by clicking the column headers, hover the mouse over the cutouts and spectra to see full size.
  • Go to HEASARC or Vizier to create a subset of a published catalog, save as VOTable, then use Load Sky Positions / from local VOTable
