Query tools allow the user to select relevant data tables and to extract and format records matching given criteria. To be deposited within VizieR, data must be related to a publication in a refereed journal, either as tables or catalogues actually published, or as a paper describing the data and their context. VizieR is certified by the CoreTrustSeal. DOI: 10.26093/cds/vizier
