TAP Support in PyVO

Becker Stefan, Demleitner Markus

PyVO is an astropy-affiliated package providing an API for the access and retrieval of astronomical datasets from the Virtual Observatory (VO) using various VO Data Access Layer Protocols.  This poster reports on the recent addition of support for the Table Access Protocol (TAP) in PyVO.  Methods for synchronous and asynchronous queries are provided, including support for uploading local tables.  PyVO's TAP support also allows inspection of the service metadata.  Thanks to astropy integration, it is straightforward to work with the obtained results and re-use them either in further VO queries or in custom python code.
