This class collects scalar point-to-point distance measurements for various named intervals of interest, as well as providing a class for specifying arbitrary distance measurements as needed. Unless otherwise stated, distances are measured center-to-center, and references to "target" and "central body" refer to the objects identified in the <Target_Identification> and <Central_Body_Identification>, respectively, in this <Geometry_Orbiter> class.

All distances are considered positive, and you must provide units of an appropriate type in each case. For example:

     <spacecraft_to_target_center_distance unit="km">15.097</spacecraft_to_target_center_distance>

A Word About Geometry Vectors

The various vectors in the Geometry Discipline dictionary are derived from common parent classes, providing consistent structure and terminology. The "specific' vectors listed below have been defined for the set of vectors that appear in the majority of orbiter/flyby data products. For these vectors the start and end point ("observer" and "target", in general terms) and coordinate system are part of the definition of the vector itself. You should use these specific vectors whenever they might reasonably apply, as they provide a common nomenclature for these values that users can key into across the archive.

When you need to specify a vector for a quantity outside this standard set, use the generic vector classes, which allow you to specify observer, target, and coordinate system.

The details of the structure of each family of vectors in the Geometry Discipline dictionary are summarized on the Filling Out the Geometry Vector Classes page.

<Specific_Position_Vectors>

OPTIONAL

This class collects vector positions to and from various end points into a single class. In the vector names, the first object named (on the left) is taken as the "observer", the second as the "target", for purposes of identifying the direction of measurement. So in the Sun_To_Spacecraft_Position_Vector_Cartesian, the sun is treated as the "observer" and the spacecraft as the "target" for purposes of defining the vector. Unless otherwise indicated, all positions are measured from and to the center of mass.

These vectors are all specific instances of the more generic position vectors, and they follow the same constraints and naming conventions, except as noted in the generic vector descriptions.

You may include only those position vectors of interest, but the vectors you use must appear in this order. You may repeat any of these vectors as many times as you like, but the repetitions must be grouped together. If you have positions to document that are not included in this class, use the <Generic_Vectors> class and its subclasses to define and describe them. If you prefer to group your vectors by coordinate system rather than content, use the <Specific_Cartesian_Vectors> and <Specific_Planetocentric_Vectors> classes.

OPTIONAL

Position of the target identified by the Target_Identification in this Geometry_Orbiter class, as viewed from the spacecraft. It is filled out as a specific form of the <Position_Vector_Cartesian_Generic> class.

OPTIONAL

Position of the spacecraft as viewed from the central body (around which another body is orbiting), in planetocentric coordinates. It is filled out as a specific form of the <Position_Vector_Cartesian_Generic> class.

<Specific_Velocity_Vectors>

OPTIONAL

This class collects vector velocities into a single class. In general terms, each vector records the velocity of a "target" as perceived by an "observer". In the class names, the "target" comes first (on the left), and the "observer" comes second. So in the Spacecraft_Relative_to_Earth_Velocity_Vector_Cartesian class, the spacecraft is taken as the "target" and Earth is taken as the "observer" for purposes of defining the velocity. Unless otherwise indicated, all velocities are measured from and to the center of mass.

These vectors are all specific instances of the more generic velocity vectors, and the follow the same conventions, except as noted in the generic vector descriptions.

You may include only those velocity vectors of interest, but the vectors you use must appear in this order. You may repeat any of these vectors as many times as you like, but the repetitions must be grouped together. If you have velocities to document that not included in this class, use the <Generic_Vectors> class and its subclasses to define and describe them. If you prefer to group your vectors by coordinate system rather than content, use the <Specific_Cartesian_Vectors> and <Specific_Planetocentric_Vectors> classes.
