4- by 5-in. Mosaic Negative Film Sheets


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

Time span: 1967-11-10 to 1967-11-24


This data set consists of Mosaic photographs on 4-by 5-in. black and white negative film sheets. The Mosaics are composed of the photographs taken between November 10 and November 24, 1967. Included are analytical, improved, rectified, and spherical Mosaics. Analytical Mosaics are made by placing the pictures at their correct nominal location on a prepared grid without attempting to match images. improved Mosaics present a more coherent view of small areas of the panorama because the picture images are carefully matched. Rectified Mosaics are made by transforming the image plane of the individual pictures to a plane other than that perpendicular to the line of sight of the camera. Spherical, semi-improved, or semi-enhanced Mosaics are made on the inside of large hemispheres, but they are otherwise similar to improved Mosaics. This process does not distort panorama images as does the flat processing used for the other Mosaics.
