## Description

This dataset contains model results from a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) model of Ganymede's magnetosphere adapted to Juno's PJ34 flyby in 2021. Here we publish coordinates for the predicted location of the open-closed-field line-boundary (OCFB) on Ganymede's surface. Additionally we provide coordinates of Juno's magnetic footprint, namely the surface locations that connect to Juno's trajectory through magnetic field lines.

For the surface locations we use a western longitude planetographic coordinate system where 0° longitude is in direction of the y-axis and 90° in direction of the x-axis of the cartesian GPhiO system. The GPhiO system is defined by the primary direction

z parallel to Jupiter’s rotation axis, the secondary direction y is pointing towards Jupiter barycenter

and x completes the right-handed system approximately in direction of plasma flow.
