Short NameNameDescriptionLocationStatusTo do (v1 or v2)CommentsVersion_2 / updates


Titan_profilesVertical Profiles in Titan Middle AtmosphereAtmospheric profiles of Titan from Cassini/CIRSPADC/LESIA


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

Rewrite with mixin (required to fix coord UCDs)

Correct existing file names

√ Added new series of profiles from C. Mathé

Update of older files scheduled ~ mid 2020 - refined inversion method, either as replacement or addition, TBD

New data provided end 2019

Formerly called titan

Updated to v2 in 2016, to be tested again

Mixin version installed Jan 2020

VVExVIRTIS on Venus-Express: standard dataset

Access to spectral cubes. Venus-Express legacy

nb of granules : ~ 50,000 calibrated/geometry files
+ derived products (maps, profiles, etc)



Complete data description with geometry, enlarge to the complete dataset. Intended as a demonstrator of both EPN-TAP access to the PSA, and data handling / distributing system in a PI team for an experiment in operation phase (would replace the Otarie/ION system in Meudon). In the mid-term, this will include derived products, which are not in the PSA.

• v1 addressing part of nominal mission, limited nb of parameters
+ some inconsistencies

• First v2 version for nominal mission, param from archive INDEX - still des not use the mixin.

• Next version: will get data from the PI database. May include cruise phase (not in the PSA)? that would require to make the files available somewhere (could be the PSA extra area?)

v2 update from Toulouse 2016  workshop (demo) - 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).
Possible issue: this would include ~ 10E9 entries
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 (possibly in APERICubes, TBC). This will have a noticeable added value wrt a similar service from the PSA, only possible in the PI team.

The main idea is to test a service with fits images only, and handling in VO tools.

This one is a simple test case.


Start from fits dataset in PDS SBN. First check if pointing, etc available (WCS may not be relevant, but helio distance?)

Regularly updated on-line.
Related somehow to the NEOshield-2 EU program

Table is easy to enter (note that Binary objects, noted B in 1rst column, have 2 entry lines; only the first one is relevant).

Each object has a detailed page with extensive biblio that cannot be included in the table - should be linked with external_link parameter)


Data from Fripon detection system.

Includes raw images, detection images, orbits, trajectories, and possibly GRAVE radar periodograms (used for atmosphere / aerosols studies also)

Paris / Marseille ?


Discussed at EPSC 2018. Needs further study
VIRTIS cometary phaseVIRTIS Rosetta

Just provide images and plots of operations / acquisition? This would be a different demonstrator of EPN-TAP service in support to an experiment in operation:

  • granules = MTPs or STPs. Link to ancillary images / plots (SE material) - wait for regeneration of overall geometry (2019)?
  • granules = files. Link to synthetic surface-related images (BR material)

The file service is easily adapted from VVEx service; wait for final dataset to be accommodated on the PSA?



An ST-MOC would be very helpful. Need s_region first

LuckyStar ?LuckyStarStellar occultations by asteroids and satellites, ERC programme.
Provides measurements of radii, shapes, albedo, density. Include a compilation of other measurements.

Get parameters from files/datasets?

Identify a better way to access detached labels (datalink?).

v2 direct started in 2016. Uses ESA non-DaCHS server (TAP library), apparently with modifications (new fct ivo_hashlist_has not available)
HST_planetoHST planetary dataData of planets, dwarf planets and satellites (no asteroids) from HST. Calibrated & derived products. Data and thumbnails at CADCPADC & CADC


√ Data selection is tricky…

√ Target name, instrument & detector name, obs type are controled and fixed

Data description still to be improved? (multiple targets, etc)

Includes ephemeris data via datalink

• Access tricky to handle in the portal: "B/planet", requires specific handling mode

• Check description & parameters

HerschelESA's Herschel archive for Solar System objectsExtract from global archive? Only standard products, ie raw and pipeline (TBC)Madrid, ESAC


EPN-TAP parameters ~identified - restrained in this case

(To be done on their side)

Evaluation by Baptiste: easy to do but requires optimization of target identification + data files are not standard fits cubes - how should they be handled?

Assessment study, Jan 2020 
T1m Pic du Midi, images

IMCCE, Colas

Would still be very nice!
First need to make fits headers uniform.
Distribute raw images and make it a collaborative service accepting submission of calibrated products?
May require to hire a post-doc to check & process everything

• But get data first of all!
• Other parameters probably required, e.g. camera orientation in focal plane

 Ephemeris can be called during ingestion, see IRTF_OrtonUse with EPN-TAP2 mixin (fits grammar) & call ephemeris from q.rd
Opposition of Mars 1994
Processed images from Pic du Midi: calibrated & projectedLESIA, Erard
May be used as a first demo of complete T1m service

Opposition of Mars 1999, HSTHST images from J. Bell

PDS GeoSciences Node has a dataset of 1999-2001 opposition images and cubes in fits + geometry & projected versions.
More elaborated version than the HST archive/HST_planets service, reformatted: projected and include i/e angles. Fits files, provided with PDS labels.

~ 500 images, each in cylindrical and orthographic projection + cubes grouping series of 12 related images for each projection & incidence/emission angles.


Demo for use of images + coordinates planes (include only cubes?)

Congruence with HST_planets

Should be included in HST_planets?

Pb: file extensions are not "fits", so they won't open automatically

Could be based on IDIS resource list from FP7 - has to be cleaned up and modernized though. Can be TAP, but not EPN-TAP.
• Or instead, use github of OpenPlanetary (ideally, that should be in IPDA registry…)

Potential issue with maintenance.

Would help wait for computing on demand system
