A new approach for obtaining spatial and energetic information is described. It is shown how the field configuration and other experimental parameters can be optimized so as to obtain the best spatial resolution. For demonstration purposes, an electrostatic octople, comprising eight cylindrical electrodes of alternating polarity equally spaced around a circle is considered.
