Abstract: This tutorial intended to teach participants how to use recent Virtual Observatory standards allowing exploration and querying of all-sky datasets. The Hierarchical Progressive Survey (HiPS) and the Multi-Order Coverage map (MOC) can be used by data providers to expose their datasets (images or catalogs), and astronomers can use them to perform complex queries on all-sky datasets. Participants have created image and catalog HiPS, learned how to compare them to reference datasets, and share them in a web page. Advanced usage with the Table Access Protocol (TAP) and with the Python libraries Astropy and MOCPy was also shown.
