VIP4 takes three inputs: Radial Distance [m], Latitude [rad], and Longitude [rad]. The function performs a spherical harmonic expansion of the magnetic field based on the observations of the Voyager, Pioneer, and IFT probes.

Could be useful to specify the units of measure for the input parameters; otherwise good job!
