Posted by VizieR Team on 11 June 2021 18:02 CEST

Dear VO members -

A new version of the CDS registry is now available (and official) in accordance with the recent recommendations of the IVOA registry.

The new version is available @ http://cdsweb.unistra.fr/registry/ and is ready to be harvested by Registries of Registries.

The upgrades include:


  • a description of the mirrors
  • a MOC footprint
  • a spectral band
  • the catalogues DOI
  • a better management of related resources
  • a keyword mapping using the Unified Astronomical Thesaurus (UAT).


The historical version will continue to be maintained with old and new records ( @ http://cdsweb.u-strasbg.fr/reg-bin/vizier/oai.pl) to let clients (ie: RofR) the time to update the records -

We ask RofR and any other clients to harvest the full CDS registries.

We (CDS) stay in touch to any reports/questions
