√ Check descriptions
√ Enlarge contents
√ Remove duplicates!
√ TAP parameters reviewed

Check/correct file names and headers!!!

Fix UCDs (coordinates at least)

Updated to v2, to be tested again
VVExVIRTIS on Venus-Express: standard datasetAccess to spectral cubes. Venus-Express legacyPADC


Complete data description with geometry, enlarge to the complete dataset. Mostly intended as a demonstrator of EPN-TAP access to the PSA. In the mid-term, this will be the basis to include derived products, which are not in the PSA.

v1 addressing part of nominal mission, limited nb of parameters
still target_class=Star instead of star
v2 update from Toulouse 2016  workshop - waiting to retrieve last parameters (geometry)
VVEx+Enhanced VIRTIS dataset on Venus-ExpressWill provide access to individual spectra. Venus-Express legacy (after discussion: same service as above, not a separated one)PADC
Enlarge the above service to also provide description of VIRTIS/ VEx individual spectra with geometry parameters. Access may be a script extracting the corresponding data from the cubes (TBC). This will be a noticeable added value wrt a similar service from the PSA, only possible from the PI team.

  • granules = files. Link to synthetic surface-related images (BR material)
