TAPAS provides an interface orientated to source searching. The source can be given either by its name or by its position in the sky. It offers the possibility to filter according the kind of observations. The source name can be given either by its IRAM name or by its NED/SIMBAD name. If this solver is chosen it will use the SESAME which solves the name with SIMBAD or NED .

An observer can decide for his observation to setup the redshifted frequency of his object or the rest frequency of the transition together with the object velocity. It produces different setup in the data for the same observation. TAPAS looks for the observer's setup frequency and the velocity. For the line name the search will return the match of the line name with the observation setup.

The weather conditions found in the scan details are related to the opacity provided by the taumeter at 225 GHz.
