The Astrophysics Data Facility (ADF) has developed the Astrophysics Multispectral Archive Search Engine (AMASE) (http://amase.gsfc.nasa.gov) and a suite of visualization tools (http://adf.gsfc.nasa.gov/adf/visualization/) to support multispectral research.

AMASE Release 3 extended the spectral coverage to encompass almost the entire electromagnetic spectrum; added observations from the HST, IUE, ASCA and Alexis; added more predefined regions of interest; enriched the object classification scheme; and included the ADC (http://adc.gsfc.nasa.gov) holdings of catalogs and journal tables. New interactive features of the ADF Visualization Tools are described in a companion poster by B. Thomas, et al.

Several scientific scenarios will be presented to demonstrate how these tools can be used to support data search, browsing, and visualization. We shall describe the on-going effort that will enable interoperability with other data services (e.g., NED), user-defined views, positional data mining, and object cross identification.
