A few mosaics I've been putting together from the Zabriskie Plateau/Hidden Valley portion of the traverse. Most of these are just standard mosaics, but with the crater rim and sky patched in to give a fuller sense of what it would have been like to be standing there.


Traversing Zabriskie Plateau - Sol 692

I particularly like this one. I don't think we ever got a full MastCam view of Hidden Valley once Curiosity was inside, just a couple shots from the entrance/exit point. Fortunately Curiosity took a drive-direction mosaic pointed high enough that I could use the stereo images taken during a survey of the valley rim the next day. After that I could patch in the horizon from a 360 traverse panorama from a few sols earlier.

For those of you who use MSL PDS data, I had an email conversation with Tom Stein at the Analyst's Notebook last week in which I discussed how I thought it would be better for the default product type on Mastcam images to be DRCX rather than DRCL and they seem to have made that switch. DRCL are "linearized" which means they're corrected for lens distortion but there's so little geometric distortion in Mastcam images that it just introduced a blur without much of any benefit. So now it feeds you DRCX by default instead -- color-calibrated but not linearized.

Another change has been made to the MSL analyst's notebook at my request. For the MMM cameras, when you download images, you can download them as PDS formatted IMGs, or as JPGs, or PNGs. I had assumed that the PNGs were made from the IMGs until I discovered that they contained JPG artifacts. They confirmed that the PNGs had been made from the JPGs. I asked whether they could make the PNGs from the IMGs instead, and they have now implemented that change. So now if you download a "0% stretch" PNG from the Analyst's Notebook, you will get an image that is identical to the archival IMG. Hooray!

Great news, huge thanks to Emily and the team running the PDS. Hopefully we will see more folk working with the PDS data smile.gif

Just to be clear, some (in fact, most) of the data was originally downlinked from the rover with JPEG compression, so you'll still see those artifacts in images. You just won't be dealing with a second round of JPEG compression imposed upon the first.

On that day 5 years ago, Curiosity took its first color panorama. I stitched together this pano from the PDS PNG pics of sol 3 (+sol 13 for Mt Sharp).
Here it is in VR on RoundMe.

Hi smile.gif

Today I've been working on a previous pan I worked with, in March. But with the difference it was made with pds datas. And the result is way beyond expectations.

See bellow :



And for comparizon, the first version, made with bayererd-jpegized-unbayered pics :

ohmy.gif ....that's just ridiculous. Astounding work, Damia.

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.
