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 (crossmatch), and a better integration in the framework of the Virtual Observatory. These new features are presented in the poster, as well as their impact on the VizieR usage and contents.
Finally, the current developments are presented.
