Panoramic Mosaic Photographs on 4- by 5-in. B/W Film Sheets


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

Time span: 1971-11-14 to 1972-10-27


This data set consists of 4- x 5- in. negatives filmed from JPL-prepared mosaic boards containing the Mariner 9 B camera (narrow-angle, high-resolution) photography in which frames in a given quadrangle of the Martian surface are shown together. Frames of adjacent areas are arranged together, producing a kind of mosaic. The last four digits of the DAS time are given beside each frame, the JPL-assigned board number at the lower right corner, and the camera and type of processing (shading corrected [sc] or maximum discrimination, either vertically [VAGC] or horizontally [HAGC] in the upper right corner. The revolution number and full DAS time are given in each row. The quality is excellent, and these photos can be used for some scientific purposes, but their main purpose is for use as a catalog. An index, together with reduced-size copy of each of the mosaics, is available in microfilm (see 71-051A-04N).
