Big mastcam update! Still a work in progress, lots of loose ends to fix and the code is an absolute mess. But here it is:


Attached Image


Marslife currently shows the full Mastcam coverage of the selected site by using outlined placeholder images.
When you click inside a placeholder area, the corresponding sequence name(s) will appear in a list below the lefthand menu.
From this list you can choose the sequence you want to view and press 'LOAD' to download the images from the NASA server.
Press tab to hide the placeholder images and press the 'm' key to toggle the display of both Mastcam and placeholder images.

Checkout the updated preview here: https://captainvideo.nl/marslife/preview.html.

Enjoy!

I will be running out of superlatives soon!

Everything works well here ( using Brave browser )

Clicking between placeholders & loading is just fine & intuitive. It would be great if there was a on/off toggle for each mastcam sequence. Tab function is a great feature that is getting a lot of use!

Can't wait to see where you take this... it was already awesome to begin with!

This new preview build is epic - I dropped a quick play by play of what it does into work slack to share it with the MSL team.

Bravo.....BRAVO.

While the new rover is drawing all the attention I'm happy to report that the update script for Marslife now includes support for Curiosity's L&R Mastcam images.
Marslife will automatically add new Mastcam images to the corresponding post-drive panorama as soon as the Nasa json file receives an update.

Check Marslife here: https://marslife.org

This is really nice. Just a couple of comments: Is there any ability to zoom in or out without a scroll wheel or touch screen? (Eg, shift-click.) I couldn't see how to do that with desktop firefox or chrome.

A fun feature might be to display the latest planned ("strategic") route, so we can get some idea of where we're headed. Of course that's only provisional, and someone would have to digitize that route.

Hey fredk, thanks for the feedback.
Keyboard zoom was indeed missing and has been added to the - and = keys next to the keyboard numbers, I hope this solution works for you.
Digitizing strategic routes will be quite a challenge because the elevation data is also required. smile.gif

Someone did ... see post #1392 of the MSL Route Map thread. rolleyes.gif

PS - There should be an update in the relatively near short time

I had noted images on the raw image page being assigned the wrong sol - like the upward views of the parachute on sol 0 being labelled sol 2 (the date needs to be when it's taken, not when received, or we will never know where we are). I hope that gets sorted out.

Thanks for doing this, it's a great tool and one which will be very useful.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Doug E pointed me in the right direction after I replied on Twitter to a post where the sol numbers of EDL cameras were off-kilter. Doug told me that the time-stamp was assigned when the images were transferred from the EDL cameras to the flight computer. Like you I hope it gets sorted out, but it could be a lengthy task.
