Black and White Stereo Pairs

NSSDCA ID: PSPA-00262

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1976-09-22 to 1977-04-24

Description

These data, supplied by the Orbiter Imaging Team, are on 5- x 5-in. black and white film and consist of frames identified as having overlapping coverage. Stereo studies of Viking images are still in the earliest stages and no stereo product as such has been defined. Frames should be ordered in the orthographic version for stereo studies. It should be understood that the visual imaging subsystem on the Viking Orbiters was not well adapted for acquiring stereo data, and that their acquisition was not a major objective of the primary mission. The pairs contain significant but variable amounts of overlap. In some cases the two frames were taken at widely different times so that lighting conditions did not match well. Stereo coverage of higher quality and greater quantity was obtained in the extended mission.
