Collaborations

The APIS service makes use of planetary ephemeris provided by the Institut de Mécanique Céleste et de Calcul des Ephémérides through its VO service MIRIADE and by the University of Iowa through a dedicated ephemeris tool.

Hisaki/EXCEED data are processed by, and under the responsability of, japanese colleagues (T. Kimura, RIKEN, Japan).

The APIS data can be used interactively with VO plotting tools such as Aladin (developed at CDS, Strabourg), Cassis (developed at IRAP, Toulouse) or Specview (developed at STSci, Baltimore).

The APIS service is inter-connected with VO services of the CDPP such as the AMDA, 3Dview and propagation tools.
