On this page we assemble additional material (movies, worksheets, programms, ...) for visualizing the effects and for evaluating the observations. Most of the material will be linked on the corresponding pages.
- Work sheets
- The exact mesurement of Venus' positions on the Sun's disc may be done with evaltransitpicts.
- As comp2Venuspositions.xls the program calcparallax calculates the Astronomical Unit by comparing two simultaneously measured positions of Venus.
- With comptransitpos complete position data of two distant observers can be combined in order to get the best possible measure of the Astronomical Unit from their observations.If no suitable measures for this comparation are available theoretical geocentric data may be taken instead (tableofVenuspositionsGeoc.xls).
