Version 1.0 First Version
Version 1.01 clarification about dimensions and coordinate
frame used ( ECI )
The COE ( Classical Orbital Elements ) tool will help to
visualize orbital elements around a planet and is intended
as a help to experiment with the different orbital elements
and see how the orbit will look like.
The orbit color is as follows
The coordinate frame is ECI ( Earth Centered Inertial )
where the X-axis is pointing towards vernal equinox.
The X-axis has the point colored black
The Y-axis has the point colored blue
The Z-axis has the point colored red
The ascending node vector is in the equatorial plane
When you plot an orbit the graphic window will automatically
be set to hold-off so to be able to plot 2 or more orbits
in the same window you have to press the hold-on button
in between every plot command.
