Meteor camera FOV visualization tool resurrected!

Meteor camera FOV visualization tool resurrected!

About 10 years ago Geert Barentsen wrote an awesome tool for visualizing fields of view (FOVs) of meteor cameras that was hosted on ESA webpages. Unfortunately it stopped working some years ago and the meteor community was left without this awesome tool!

But, because the source code was available, we were able to resurrect and host it on our webpages! You can access it here:

FOV3D tool

This tool allow you to input the location of your meteor station, camera pointing and the size of the field of view. It will then generate an KML file that you can load into Google Earth!
