The SaVoir Charts Plugin provides a number charting and plotting functions and capabilities to SaVoir for a number of key orbit, swath and performance parameters. In particular, the Color Maps, allow to plot depth of coverage, revisit times, latency, delivery times and sun zenith angles on a global interactive map with unprecedented performance.
The Charts plugin extends the SaVoir functionalities to provide numerous charting and plotting capabilities which are important for applications such as mission analysis. Click here for a a brief presentation of the Plugin.
The plugin provides:
For each geographical position a color map will be generated. A color code will indicate the class desired value (average, maximum, minimum or standard deviation) for the simulation period and the selected satellite sensors. All plots allow for multi satellite/sensor plots and the scale of colors can be customized. Plots are generated for global Earth or clipped to selected regions.
- Depth of swath coverage
- Depth of AOI coverage
- Depth of antennas coverage
- Revisit time
- Latency time (sensing – downlink)
- Delivery time (sensing – downlink – delivery to user)
- Sun zenith angle
