Finally, the data are here:

Unfortunately, the server is running terribly slow.

That's not strange - that's what they should look like. It's a pushframe camera. Unfortunately, as for MARCI, they appear to be only releasing the raw data.

Don't forget, though, that the THEMIS visible images were also comprised of multiple framelets like that, and a bit later the properly mosaicked versions were also available.

Looks like flipping each 'band' will make it look a lot nicer. Should be easy to script up for someone who has the ability (not me!).

Until I can do a search for specific images, this won't be very useful to me. Probably won't be long...

Yeah - but after 3 years of MARCI, they've not done it, and I doubt they'll do it for this either.

LOLA. I want my LOLA. I've got rapid prototyping machines waiting to make moon models.

A bit off topic, but I was hoping someone can help-
I can't seem to get IMG2PNG to work on my computer- downloaded the latest version, and I was hoping to explore some of the LROC data release. However, the exe file gets this error "This application has failed to start because cftisio.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." I kept the cftisio.dll file in the same folder. Same result if I copy both the .exe and .dll files to the C drive... any suggestions? Running on an XP system.

Just got this email:
QUOTE
The NASA Planetary Data System announces the first release of data from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) mission. This release includes raw and derived products for data acquired from the start of mapping on September 15, 2009, through December 14, 2009, along with data collected during the commissioning phase June 23 - September 14, 2009.

Data sets from the following experiments are included in this release:

Cosmic Ray Telescope for Effects of Radiation (CRaTER)
Diviner Lunar Radiometer Experiment (DLRE)
Lyman-Alpha Mapping Project (LAMP)
Lunar Exploration Neutron Detector (LEND)
Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA)
Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC)
Mini-Radio Frequency technology demonstration (Mini-RF)

LRO data are archived at the PDS Planetary Plasma Interactions (PPI), Geosciences, Imaging, and Navigation and Ancillary Information (NAIF) Nodes. The data may be accessed from these nodes' web sites and from the main PDS home page, http://pds.nasa.gov/ or http://pds.nasa.gov/subscription_service/SS-20100315.html.

PDS offers two services for searching the LRO archives:

The Planetary Image Atlas at the Imaging Node allows selection of LRO data by specific search criteria. The Image Atlas will be available shortly.
Please check the Imaging Node web site for information about its availability.
http://pds-imaging.jpl.nasa.gov/index_pdsimg_new.html.

The Lunar Orbital Data Explorer at the Geosciences Node allows searching and downloading of LRO data and other lunar orbital data sets (Clementine and Lunar Prospector). http://ode.rsl.wustl.edu/moon/.

To receive email announcements of future releases of LRO data, please use the PDS Subscription Service at http://pds.jpl.nasa.gov/tools/subscription_service/top.cfm.

The LOLA data are now also available !
In addition to the RDR and GDR products, I would like to point you to some products which were made with users like you in mind!

First, the big binary GDR files (maps) were converted to GeoJPEG2000, much easier to import in software like ArcGIS. Projection information is included in the headers, so that should work transparently.
location: http://imbrium.mit.edu/DATA/LOLA_GDR/

Second, we are releasing ready-made textures for Celestia. Many of you know Celestia (shatters.net/celestia), and some of you produced normal maps from the Kaguya altimetry data. In addition to a LOLA normal map, a texture showing the topography in false-color was made.
location: http://imbrium.mit.edu/EXTRAS/CELESTIA/

Enjoy !

Erwan,

Thanks for that news about the LOLA data. However, I'm a right-brained artist working on a Mac with an app like MacDEM, which was able to work with the MGS MOLA .img files *very* nicely, given the numbers of rows and columns. I suspect that I won't be able to use anything like ArcGIS. Any ideas on how I might be able to get 16-bit grayscale maps out of the files you cited? In the meantime, I'll forward the URL to my rapid prototype folks; perhaps they'll know what to do for the models. I'd really love to be able to put the grayscale maps into Terragen.

Rick

EDIT: Holy cow, I just downloaded one of the "smaller" 17MB JPEG2000 files, and it's already in 16-bit B&W. I see files in there that are 3+ GB. Yeeeoooowww. Many, many, many thanks! - Rick

Just a taste of the bounty to come:

Attached Image


Tracks of Lunokhod 2. I can tell at once that the old route map will need a total revision. This is only the browse image! To find it I downloaded CUMINDEX.CAT, a cumulative index file, comma delimited text file. In Excel I deleted all the columns I'm not interested in, sorted by longitude, and found the latitude i wanted, then found the image in the browse folder. The image number is in my file's name.

Rick,
glad the JP2s are working for you (they are all unsigned INT16). But the IMGs are there as well, just in case!

Whoa-ho-ho!!! Great eye, Phil!
