Launched in April 2018, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) will soon be releasing its first data. The mission will provide us with the largest sky survey of transiting exoplanets. To confirm these planets and find their characteristics the SPIRou spectrograph operating at the Canada-France Hawaii Telescope will acquire information about the planet's mass through velocimetry. TESS, SPIRou and the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) are meant to compliment each other in the study of exoplanets. Data visualization tools are therefore crucial for the observation planning of these ground-based and space-based missions. Throughout a summer internship at the Institute for Research on Exoplanets (iREx), several tools were developed to facilitate the data visualization and data analysis with TESS and SPIRou.
