The GEOMETRY directory holds NAIF SPK files for Galileo
Satellite Field and Mass Determination Experiments.
Each file is a data module which can be read and interpreted
using software provided by the PDS Navigation and Ancillary
Information Facility (NAIF). That software is described briefly in
TK_FTP.TXT, TK_DESCR.TXT, and TK_INSTL.TXT in the DOCUMENT directory.
Users will normally convert the file from its archival
'transfer' format to the local binary format using the NAIF utility
SPK file names are of the form SyymmddB.XSP (or the alternate
form of Syy-dddA.XSP). Detached PDS labels have names SyymmddB.LBL
(or the alternate form of Syy-dddA.LBL). In each case yymmdd
represents the 2-digit year, 2-digit month, and 2-digit day on which
the file starts; whereas ddd represents the Julien day of the year.
