Panoramic Camera Photography Support Data (Digitized)


Availability: Data Identified but not Received

Time span: 1972-12-10 to 1972-12-16


This collection consists of digitized microfilm frames containing support data for the panoramic camera photography from the Apollo 17 mission. The parameters covered for the photography (one page of data per photo) are -- orbital vectors longitude and latitude of the nadir point, longitude and latitude of the 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 angles, swing and north deviation angles, tilt, heading, and laser slant range. The beginning frames contain summary tables and an explanation of the parameters.

For this digitization effort the NSSDCA scanned the source microfilm collection PSPG-00076 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.

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