Mapping Camera Photography Support Data on 16-mm Microfilm


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

Time span: 1972-12-11 to 1972-12-16


This data set of support data for the mapping (metric) camera photography on the Apollo 17 mission is contained on 16-mm microfilm. The parameters covered in the data for the photography are -- orbital vectors, longitude and latitude of nadir point, longitude and latitude of camera axis intersect, spacecraft radius and altitude, azimuth velocity vector and horizontal velocity, scale factor, mean altitude rate, tilt angle and azimuth, sun elevation, azimuth of principal point, longitude and latitude of subsolar point, emission and phase angle, swing, north deviation angles, tilt, heading and laser slant range. The beginning of the roll contains summary tables and explanatory information on the parameters listed above. Quality of reproduction is good.

Digital images (scans) of the entire contents of the microfilm are available as data collection PSPG-00935.

These support data are available as ASCII tables in this peer-reviewed PDS data set:
