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 :
- 2012-2014
- 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.

A paper fully describing the APIS service has been published in a special issue of the Astronomy and Computing journal on Virtual Observatories. Preprint online.

Update

24 Jul 2014

Major update of the search interface, with many new advanced search criteria, such as the position of moons and spacecraft (Galileo and Cassini) for the Jupiter and Saturn systems.

Addition of two recent campaigns :
- Saturn, Apr.-May 2013 (ACS, 345 images)
- Uranus, Sept.-Oct. 2012 (ACS/STIS, 23 images, 3 spectra)
