Apollo 15 Metric (Mapping) and Panoramic Cameras - Photographic Ephemeris Support Data Collection (PDS)


Availability: Archived at NSSDC, accessible from elsewhere


This collection contains comma-separated ASCII tables of ephemeris data (spacecraft state vectors, camera orientation, photograph position, and lighting data) computed during the Apollo era for analyzing and using photographic images taken of the moon from 30 July to 4 August 1971 by the Apollo 15 Metric (Mapping) and Panoramic Cameras from lunar orbit. These tables were produced using optical character recognition (OCR) software to read TIFF images of scanned tabular output on microfilm. These scans were merged and provided in this collection as two PDF/A files, one for each camera. Data available online at: in the /geometry_orbital_photographic_ephemeris directory.
