Hi, VMC team here, its been a while.

We thought we'd give you an early Christmas present.

We have updated the VMC blog to now permit the downloading of the raw unprocessed images.

The entire VMC image archive is now downloadable in raw format.

http://blogs.esa.int/vmc/2014/12/17/access...-image-archive/


This will be now automatically populated along with the flickr page within a few hours of images arriving.
anyone following the @esamarswebcam twitter account then gets a tweet telling them new images are available.

we've also made single archives of a each years observations so those of you who want to get the full set don't have to spend ages downloading each observation individually.

and to launch this new setup we've been lucky enough to have taken these rather nice images of the Martian south pole on Monday morning!

That latest image is great - the almost detached section of the polar cap used to be known as the 'Mountains of Mitchell' after an astronomer who discovered it.

hi,

just in case you haven't seen this,

we're running a program to offer schools the chance to image Mars using VMC at the end of May.

Hello,
I cannot seem to be able to download the "vmc_flat.raw" file from Gordan link in the forom. I am always redirected to a totally different website. Is the a more up to date link?

thanks for mentioning this, i've added the current flat field to the raw image archive.

http://blogs.esa.int/vmc/vmc-data-archive/

its at the bottom with the full year archives.

btw, if anyone fancies having a go at creating a new one, do feel free, we have a lot more images now than when the current one was made including some (like our ISON observations from october 2013 ) without Mars in it

Right-click to save it. It is a raw image file, not a png or jpg file that can be clicked and viewed in a browser.

Hi,

I noticed that the altitude is not being written to the image set description at flickr - is there someone here who can fix it? It just says %altitude% as in "VMC Image acquired on 13-10-2017 at 06:07:25 at an altitude of %altitude% km above Mars"

yeah its been like that for a while, the interface to the system in flight dynamics where the information is obtained from was changed

it should be working now.

ironically this is just in time for the web article about the first publication since VMC was upgraded to full science instrument status!
http://www.esa.int/Our_Activities/Space_Sc...altitude_clouds

its a milestone we're really proud of, congratulations to everyone on here who has contributed over the years, we wouldn't have gotten this far without you!

for those interested, the full paper is in the january edition of the journal icarus and is available here

I'd like to add my thanks and congratulations to the mighty mighty army of UMSF image wizards who have made such a significant contribution to the science utility of VMC. That's a really special thing you all did right there...you should be extremely proud!!! smile.gif

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.
