Collaborations

The APIS service makes use of planetary ephemeris provided by the Institut de Mécanique Céleste et de Calcul des Ephémérides (IMCCE) through its VO service MIRIADE (piloted by J. Berthier, IMCCE, Observatoire de Paris) and by the University of Iowa through a dedicated ephemeris tool (piloted by J. Green).

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

The APIS data can be used interactively with VO plotting tools such as Aladin (developed at CDS, Strabourg), Cassis (developed by J.-M. Glorian et al. at IRAP, Toulouse) or Specview (maintained by I. Busco at STSci, Baltimore).

The APIS service is developed along VO standards (such efforts benefit regular discussions with experts such as S. Erard, J. Aboudarham, LESIA and C. Marmo, GEOPS) and is therefore inter-connected with VO services of the CDPP such as the AMDA, 3Dview and propagation tools (V. Génot, N. André, A. Rouillard, IRAP) .
