NEAR Multi-Spectral Imager (MSI) Level 1B Data Archive (PDS)

NSSDCA ID: PSPG-00726

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

Time span: 1996-02-20 to 2001-02-12

Description

This data set contains the raw images returned by the NEAR-Shoemaker Multispectral Imager (MSI). The data are divided into volumes which contain cruise, Eros fly-by, Eros orbit, and Earth fly-by images. The data are in the form of FITS files with attached FITS headers and detached PDS labels. Data files contain one image per file. The processing history includes no background, noise, geometry or other corrections. A browse subdirectory containing .GIF files of the images is also available. Instrument information for the various phases are stored with the data.

The PDS data sets and associated volumes and dates are as follows:

NEAR-A-MSI-2-EDR-CRUISE1-V1.0 NICRU1_0001,2 1996051 - 1997150

NEAR-A-MSI-2-EDR-CRUISE2-V1.0 NICRU2_0002 1997218 - 1997342

NEAR-A-MSI-2-EDR-CRUISE3-V1.0 NICRU3_0002 1998210 - 1998353

NEAR-A-MSI-2-EDR-CRUISE4-V1.0 NICRU4_0002,3 1998363 - 1999354

NEAR-A-MSI-2-EDR-EROS/FLY/BY-V1.0 NIERFB_0002 1998357 - 1998357

NEAR-A-MSI-2-EDR-EARTH-V1.0 NIERTH_0002 1998023 - 1998026

NEAR-A-MSI-2-EDR-MATHILDE-V1.0 NIMATH_0002 1997176 - 1997178

NEAR-A-MSI-2-EDR-EROS/ORBIT-V1.0 NIEROS_0002 TO 0101 2000011 - 2001043

The data set NEAR-MSI-6-RDR-INSTRUMENT-INFO-V1.0 is also found on volumes NICRU2_0001, NICRU3_0001, NICRU4_0001, NIERFB_0001, NIERTH_0001, NIMATH_0001, and NIEROS_0001.

The data are stored on DVD volumes NICRUZ_1001 and NIEROS_1001 to 1014. The NICRUZ_1001 DVD contains all images from the cruise phase, Earth flyby, Eros flyby, and Mathilde flyby. The NIEROS DVD's contain the images taken from Eros orbit. The total data volume is 57314 Mb on 116 CD volumes. The 101 Eros orbit volumes are distributed on the NIEROS DVD's as follows:

DVD NIEROS_1001 NIEROS_0001 to NIEROS_0008

DVD NIEROS_1002 NIEROS_0009 to NIEROS_0016
