My question now is: should we regenerate the first map extension from scratch? It would require someone (*cough* Tesheiner) to relocate the corners of the beginning image tiles. I would also think it would be better to regenerate the base images so that they are non-overlapping (which probably needs James' help). And if we are going to do that, and are doing all the map segments at once, I think we should try to match the levels among the different base images to make them appear seamless. This last step I can do very easily (by determining what levels adjustment is needed using the browse versions of the HiRISE images, then using a Photoshop macro to run it on the folder full of 8192 by 8192 chunks).

Back to this topic, I was playing working today on the task of finding the coordinates of the image tiles, and here's an Excel sheet with all of them and a little bit more.
Attached File  ESP_011765_Reg_to_PSP_001414.xls ( 118.5K ) Number of downloads: 433

The coordinates of the complete picture ESP_011765_1780 were calculated trying to register the image to the HiRISE picture embedded on GE. They don't match 100% but the difference is really small in the area I was concerned which is the point Opportunity's path moves from one image to the other one. From those coordinates to the ones corresponding to the individual non-overlapping 8k x 8k tiles the process was quite simple and straight forward.

I tested these data generating and processing the four tiles needed to cover the whole path and I'm quite happy with the result. GE zooms smoothly through all LODs.

Wow. Great work, Eduardo.

The next step that needs to be done is for James to regenerate the tiles in PNG format, but I know he can't get to this for a few days at least. Then I have to do levels, run them through MapTiler, and upload, which will take some time and I won't be able to start for two weeks -- I am covering DPS this week, and will be on vacation without access to my main computer for the week after that. So there may be a little break here. But I think we'll get to the new map before Opportunity gets to the edge of the current one smile.gif

Just to have this posted in one place in the thread, the three images for the South of Victoria, Santa Maria, and Endeavour segments are, respectively:
http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/ESP_011765_1780
http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/PSP_005423_1780
http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/PSP_010341_1775
(correct me if I'm wrong!)

I may (or may not) have a chance to set my scripts running to make the image tiles for Emily tonight. Has the decision been made if we want to stick with the current overlap, have no overlap or a smaller one? Any of these just as easy for me.

All tests I did with non-overlapping tiles resulted on no gap at all. So I would say 8192 x 8192 tiles without overlap and starting at the top left corner.

Sorry for the long break -- DPS happened, then some necessary travel. In the meantime James got me the two tiles of PSP_005423_1780_RED that we've been working on that cover Santa Maria in PNG format. Unfortunately, MapTiler is not handling these correctly, but I have a suspicion that it's because my old computer is running out of memory. I should have a brand-new computer in two weeks with more than enough memory to handle this problem, and then I'll revisit it. I *think* Opportunity will not get to the edge of the current map in two weeks...it would be awesome if I were wrong about that, though!

Here's mine: smile.gif

It's a mosaic of CTX and HiRISE that I put together in Photoshop for traverse planning. I used Photoshop so I could take care of shading differences between overlapping images. I also used the lowest emission angle images to minimize topographic distortions to the map projection (which only corrects for the MOLA long-wavelength topography). At this scale, you can't see the HiRISE at full resolution, of course...

I made the mosaic so we'd have continuous HiRISE coverage of our route all the way to Endeavour.

When we're "done" with Endeavour, I'll have to make another map, I suppose! biggrin.gif

I thought it might be time to resurrect this topic.
Once we're done with Santa Maria, Opportunity will be out of the current background picture in a matter of weeks.

I spent some time today reviewing the process required to have HiRISE coverage from Santa Maria until Cape York, which basically was: slice one of those big JPEG2000 pictures in 8k x 8k pieces, register the pieces to match with the portions already covered at high resolution, and render them with MapTiler. With a bit of patience and a couple of beers here's the result.

Voila! Ground coverage at 25cm/pix for the remaining path. smile.gif

Now, what I need is some place to host the whole thing.

I'll be glad to host it. I can do it tomorrow -- Super Bowl today smile.gif

Thanks, Emily, for the support and for hosting this big map. smile.gif

Thanks, both, VERY much. I can't overestimate how useful that will be for my blog. Just fantastic.

Okay folks, I've now edited the first post in this thread to include all the base images.

Unless you have made edits to the base map layers in Google Mars, I recommend that you download and use this kml file, which contains all three of the base map extensions, neatly named and credited. If you use this version, all of the image files are being hosted remotely, on the Planetary Society's space on the Amazon S3 server.
