We describe the new version of the General Catalogue of Photometric Data.
Our database of photometric photoelectric data has been updated and
completely rebuilt. Most collections contain the data published to the end
of 1995, taken from more than 2500 papers. We have updated the Master Index
which now contains information for over 207500 stars and components.
Public access to the data is provided through the
World Wide Web. A connection has been established
with the ADS Abstract Service which allows to retrieve data directly from
the ADS output pages.
