The Tour Analysis Tool
"Global Magnetospheric Properties"
This tool has served the CAPS team, as well as the whole MAPS working group, (1) to visualize the different tours proposed by the project, (2) to compute statistics relevant to the magnetospheric and plasma science about each Tours, and (3) to evaluate quantitatively how each tour fulfills the MAPS observational requirements.
Early 99, T18-5 has been selected by the PSG as the new reference tour for the CASSINI mission.
This tool has been developped by the CAPS team at Observatoire Midi-Pyrenees (Toulouse, France), namely by Michel Blanc, Guillaume Cassignol, and Sylvestre Maurice. Please, send comments to
