Taking benefit of the uprising of HiPS technology in astronomy allowing to homogenize access to pixel data and thanks to the large collection of HiPS it created and operates, CDS recently developed the hips2fits service. This service allows to provide a cutout and reprojection functionality for a large collection of image surveys. In this poster, we present the SIAP2 interface we developed to allow discovery and tuning of images that can be generated by hips2fits. The interface query responses are built using the MocServer information. This service paves the way towards a new generation of virtual data Simple Image Access services.
