The APIS service relies on a database of spectro-imaging auroral observations of the outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and their moons) acquired by the Hubble Space Telescope. Various data levels can be browsed with the Search Interface through conditional search criteria.

Major update of Jupiter projections :
Data levels 2 and 3 have been calculated for all Jupiter observations obtained over 1997-2006 and 2009-2014 (namely all the available HST campaigns excepting 2007)
Jupiter polar projections additionally display magnetic markers at the footprint of the 4 galilean satellites, as modelled with the ISAaC magnetic field model (Hess, personal communication).

Addition of two recent observational campaigns :
Saturn, Feb.-Jun. 2014 (STIS, 45 images)
Ganymede, Jan.-Feb. 2014 (STIS, 8 spectra)
20 May 2015
Addition of four datasets :
Europa, Nov.-Dec. 2012 (STIS, 19 spectra)
Jupiter, Nov. 2012-Jan. 2014 (STIS, 19 images, 2 spectra)
Jupiter, Jan. 2014 (STIS, 27 images, 14 spectra)
Jupiter, Jan.-Mar. 2014 (STIS, 4 long exposure spectra)
Addition of Jupiter cylindrical/polar projections for the periods :
2009 (3 long exposure time-tagged images, each sequenced into 100s long sub-exposures)
2000-2001 (Jupiter flyby by the Cassini spacecraft)
Completion of previous STIS datasets (Jupiter, Saturn<2003) : for each STIS observation made of several sub-exposures, all the sub-exposures and the sum of them are now available separately, similarly to ACS data.
