Missions and Data
Image Clear Spacer The Rings Node of NASA's Planetary Data System is devoted to archiving, cataloging, and distributing scientific data sets relevant to planetary ring systems.

OPUS - The Rings Node's Data Search Tool

  • Now with enhanced geometric metadata for Cassini ISS, UVIS, and VIMS Saturn data.
    • Supports surface searches for the planet, satellites and rings (e.g., latitudes & longitudes).
    • Uses comprehensive target lists for Cassini ISS & VIMS.
    • Provides numerous viewing, illumination, spacecraft and instrument constraints.

Research Proposal Support - ROSES 2015

  • Our Research Proposal Support pages provide information and links to data for ROSES 2015 programs relevant to planetary rings.

  • ROSES programs impose restrictions on data quality and availability. The Data Status tab of our support pages provides this information.

Ephemeris Tool Updates

  • The new Pluto Viewer and Pluto Ephemeris Generator tools are now available.
  • The Cassini ephemeris now in use is the final selection for the remainder of the Saturn tour.
  • The small moon S/2004 N 1 is now available in all the Neptune tools.

Visit our Enhanced Cassini Support page for links to:

  • downloadable tables of enhanced geometric metadata,
    • See the Enhanced page for details,
  • preview products and the keys to their interpretation,
  • new or updated data user's guides - CIRS, ISS, RSS, & UVIS,
  • PDS's consolidated Cassini Archive Page.
