Cassini/MIMI Science Planning and Visualization Tools

Updated: May 22, 2012

The Cassini/MIMI science planning and visualization tools display spacecraft attitude, instrument fields of view, and a variety of other data in various frames and projections.  They enable the user to quickly browse targets of opportunity and visually check constraints to arrive or investigate optimum pointing.  These tools also enable users to examine "as-flown" observation geometry to facilitate data analysis.
