How do I create a cluster target in the IRAC AOT window?
Posted by Elena Scire on 21 November 2008 01:01 PM
Cluster targets are a TARGET definition, not an AOT definition. First, create the target in Spot, then create the AOT for that target.

Be careful when using map center offset or cluster array coordinate offsets for an asymmetric pattern about the map or cluster center, because it may yield differing results in different visibility windows. (see how this carefully-planned map changes 6 months later -- the small map on the far right has a separate target, but the others are controlled by map center offset. The AORs are exactly the same in each figure.
