ESO has developed a suite of tools to help you to prepare proposals for the VLT interferometric instruments including PIONIER:
- VisCalc, the visibility vs. (u,v)-plane coverage calculator.
- CalVin, the online catalog of interferometric calibrator-stars.
The list of UT and AT stations with their geographical coordinates can be found here.
