The HCV Explorer is a new, specially developed online data visualisation tool to access and easily navigate through the Hubble Catalog of Variables (HCV) in search of potentially interesting objects and download the corresponding observations for further scrutiny. This interactive visualisation tool, developed by the ESAC Science Data Centre at ESA's European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC) near Madrid, Spain, allows users to search targets by their name or coordinates and locate the variable sources around the desired target in the sky. In addition to that, it provides a series of plots showing the available light curves for each variable source and other relevant parameters, enhancing the discovery potential through visual exploration.
