Abstract: We have developed a web-based tool to preview spectral cubes and facilitate their exploration with existing spectrum analysis programs. The APERICubes tool is part of VESPA, an integrated system connecting many data services related to Planetary Sciences and Heliophysics. After being prepared on the server, the cube image planes are browsable through JS9, and the user has access to various plugins for image analysis. When a pixel or a region of interest is selected, the corresponding (average) spectrum, computed by a servlet in real time, is plotted. Thanks to the VO SAMP protocol, the generated spectra can be sent to dedicated clients such as CASSIS to be analyzed and compared.
