The MAST Data Discovery Portal is a web application for discovering astronomical observations from the Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes (MAST) as well as from across the Virtual Observatory. This portal provides robust filtering and on-sky visualization for isolating data sets of interest. Recent work includes the ability to browse the Hubble Source Catalog, and metadata-guided queries into various data sets. This work has potential links to several Virtual Observatory efforts including TAP services, Data Access and image metadata for guiding generic viewers.
