We present the current development status of TA-DA, a general Tool for Astrophysical Data Analysis. The tool is intended to provide the ability to carry out astrophysical data calibration via a simple and powerful web interface. It makes use of a Synphot-like tool to compute synthetic photometry and Chorizos (a Bayesian multi-parametric chi-squared fitting algorithm) as its internal engine. It will allow the computation of synthetic photometry from theoretical spectral energy distributions, and also compare with user uploaded observational data. It will also support the cross-calibration of photometry from different archives, analysis of individual SEDs, statistical analysis of HR diagrams and self-consistent prediction of astronomical phenomena.
