Abstract: A public database of astrophysical (radio and other) catalogs (CATS), has been created at the Special Astrophysical Observatory (SAO). It allows a user to execute a number of operations in batch or interactive mode, e.g., to obtain a list and parameters of catalogs, to extract objects from one or several catalogs by various selection criteria, to perform cross-identification of different catalogs, or to construct radio spectra of selected sources. Access to CATS is provided in both dialog mode (non-graphical), and graphics mode (hypertext, via Tcl/Tk or possibly Java in future). The result of CATS operation can be sent to the user in tabular and graphical formats.
