Has anyone played around with the HiRISE PDS release images yet? More specifically, color images? I have no time to do anything. sad.gif

Speaking of the PDS release. I was browsing the CTX images, but they're all in IMG format. So...:

- Is there a way to view these images in JPG/PNG format?
- How can I view the IMG files?
- When is MSSS going to update their site? Mars Express actually released more images this year. biggrin.gif

Well - IMG2PNG will help - and/or NASAView (google smile.gif ) for viewing IMG's.

Thanks. Works great. I wonder how long it will take CTX to map the entire planet! Like what THEMIS did here:

But then at 6 Meter/pixel! I can't wait.

4,000 gigapixels of 6m res will cover the planet - I think. Maths might be wrong.

A coworker pointed out an easy way to find the dimensions for .img files:

Open the file with a text editor. The header contains the info you need.

I work on Macs, and prefer using something like Photoshop, Gimp, or ImageJ to open .img files. Once I find the dimensions via Textedit, I open the files as raw files in Photoshop.


HTH,

Thanks for that tip Tim - this is the first CTX image I found of Gusev - a central 2kx2k crop. This is the non-flatted non-projected version.

I've only just downloaded the next version of ISIS and haven't even got it's support data yet, but am looking forward to stitching together something in colour, either false from hirise or the more accurate MARCI or CRISM.

I'm interested in oblique views of Mars like we used to get from MGS, so I might try searching CTX emission angles.

The USGS PIGWAD site has footprint maps for HiRISE, CTX, and MOC (through S23, the MSSS site only has MOC images through S10). HiRISE and CTX images are those of the July PDS release, and each footprint is hotlinked to the corresponding image. Site can be accessed as follows:

webgis.wr.usgs.gov/pigwad/maps/mars.htm (publicly available)

then go to right-hand column "Beginner" and click on "Launch Mars General"

I've always enjoyed footprint maps for their display of surface coverage. You can really tell what features are of prime scientific interest. Mars north polar cap got good coverage by CTX (monitoring retreat/advance?).

That's some interface. Well done Pigwad team biggrin.gif

I think the Mars datasets are really starting to look formidable, the way they are combined like this. My only concern is that I don't get lost in all the data and forget why I'm looking at Mars in the first place.

Some of you may have noticed that samples of our color processed images have started to show up on the HiRISE website over the last few weeks. Well today we have a treat for you, we have released 143 color images onto the website. Obviously these are all false color, but the majority of them are quite striking. All of the images released today are of candidate landing sites for the Mars Science Lab (or areas nearby candidate landing sites).

Over the next few months we intend to start color processing the rest of the data we have already received, so there will be more coming in the near future.

Enjoy!

Now what would be REALLY great would be if you made some 1200x1024 and 1600x1200 so I could use them as desktop images. :-)

Actually, our webmaster is doing that, although only for selected images. I also don't think the wallpaper he's making is large enough for high resolution monitors. I've been meaning to mention that to him...

GORGEOUS false colour images released this week, and I have to be honest and say they make a very welcome change from the 'weird shapes at the pole' images we've been seeing so much of wink.gif

Anyway, these are purely for fun; not suggesting these colours are particularly accurate or anything...
