Visualization of Orbits and Instrument Swaths
ESOV-NG (Earth Observation Swath and Orbit Visualization Tool-Next Generation) is an application which allows the user to display on the computer screen the orbit ground track and instrument swaths for the Earth Observation missions
according to specified scenario input,
i.e. the selection of the orbit interval and activation/deactivation time of various instruments present onboard.
ESOV-NG allows to visualize ground station visibility and to define specific zones of interest of the Earth surface which can be used to check ground coverage of swaths.
The ESOV-NG application has been developed in Java with the objective to provide a platform-independent tool which is
easy to maintain and which comes with a modern and user-friendly graphical interface.
This site is under construction.
