Catalog of MTVS Photography (Digitized)


Availability: Data Identified but not Received

Time span: 1971-11-09 to 1962-10-31


This collection consists of digitized microfilm frames of the complete Mariner 9 MTVS photography for catalog purposes. Generally, three renditions of each photograph are given: a) raw, (b) albedo rectified, and (c) high pass filtered (for maximum discrimination). Each frame includes metadata such as slant range, longitude and latitude, and viewing, phase, and lighting angles. The quality is very good, and the photos can be directly used for some scientific purposes.

For this digitization effort the NSSDCA scanned the source microfilm collection PSPA-00154 at a resolution of 400 dots per inch and output each frame on the film as one TIFF file. The NSSDCA also combined groups of these TIFF images into multipage PDF files to facilitate browsing. Both formats are included in this collection.
