Orbit Map

The orbit map displays the orbit and position of a given satellite or satellites for a specific time interval, if given. There are also options available to animate the map live, or for a specified time period.

Available Parameters

apiKey LeoLabs API Key. You only need to include the access key, not the secret key. This parameter is always required.
catalogNumbers LeoLabs Catalog Number or Numbers, such as L335, or L72,L225. Each catalog number selected will show that object's orbit on map.
noradCatalogNumbers Norad Catalog Number, such as 36508, or 4793,40053. Each Norad catalog number selected will show that object's orbit on map.
display Display the map in a 2D projection or a 3D visualization. Default is 2D.
epoch The ISO Datetime at which you would like the objects to be displayed at. Default is now.
startOffset The number of hours before the epoch to show the orbit. Default is 12 hours.
endOffset The number of hours after the epoch to show the orbit. Default is 12 hours.
animation Options are live, orbit, or none. live and orbit are incompatible with supplying an epoch. Default is none. live will animate to show the objects' current positions. orbit will animate the objects starting at the startOffset rather than the objects' current positions. If display=3D an animation type of live will set the speed of the animation to 1. Animation type of orbit or none is not supported if display=3D.
playable Set to true to display a button that plays an animation of the objects moving through the specified orbit. This parameter does not work when animation is set to anything other than none. Default is false. This parameter is ignored if display=3D.
playDuration If playable is set to true, you may specify how long the animation takes in milliseconds. Default is 3000. This parameter is ignored if display=3D.
hideLeolabsInstruments If hideLeolabsInstruments is set to true, the LeoLabs radars will not show up on the map. Default is false.
showRadioHorizon If showRadioHorizon is set to true, the radio horizon of each object will show up on the map. Default is false.
shape Use shape to specify a custom shape to be shown on the map using a list of [lat, lon] pairs. You can also specify a label object which takes fields lat, lon, text to display the label. This parameter is ignored if display=3D.
