Table information for 'vims_satellites.epn_core'


This table is available for ADQL queries and through the TAP endpoint.

Resource Description: The Visual and Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (VIMS) instrument onboard the Cassini spacecraft observed the system of Saturn, acquiring spectral cubes in the range 0.4-5.2 microns. This service focuses on Saturn satellites, and provides access to calibrated and ancillary data, computed as described here: It also provides direct links to a larger web site with previews.

For a list of all services and tables belonging to this table's resource, see Information on resource 'Cassini VIMS'
