just a tiny gotcha:
it seems the 'SOL' setting snaps back to 'all' whenever i select any of the MASTCAM NAVCAM CHEMCAM HAZCAM MARDI MAHLI boxes.
or maybe its just a quirk in Chrome, i haven't checked others..

you do realize Joe, that yourself and others are constructing a Mars geeks' paradise ?!

Thanks to Joe for the "go-to-site" for Curiosity images. Sitting-in through it's development here is awesome btw.......

The reason the sol list snaps back to all is that only sols that have images, given the current selection of cameras, appear in the list. When you uncheck a camera it could very well happen that there aren't any images for the given sol. So in all cases it resets to all and recalculates the list of sols that have images. Granted, maybe it could be done a little more user-friendly and it annoys me sometimes too. Until I change that, the thing to do is make the camera selections first and then select sol, order, size, etc. at will.

As for getting a set of images in more or less the same direction and location as a given image, yes, that sounds very useful!--but tricky. It would be great for figuring out CHEMCAM targets. I hate to think of a clunky interface where you have to specify az/el and location bounds, database-query style. What I'm thinking is maybe a more immediate interface where you simply click on a pixel in a displayed image, the software figures out the azimuth, elevation and location of the camera at that pixel, and then gets the set of all images from the same location that contain that az/el vector. The latter step is actually not too hard in SPICE--you just rotate the vector from the topo frame to the camera frame and check whether it's in the field of view. Maybe the returned images could each have a marker at the given direction.

A tricky part is that many images are not full size. Some are just scaled down versions which wouldn't be a problem, but others are sub-framed and it's not clear what part of the frame they're taken from. Maybe in most cases the center of the sub frame corresponds to the center of the full frame? If some false positives and negatives are tolerated maybe it wouldn't be half bad.

With Navcam images, one thing you might be able to do is to overlay on the map (in a different color) clickable wedges for other Navcam images produced at the same location. If two panorama rows were taken at the same site at different elevations, only those wedges corresponding to images at the same elevation should probably be displayed.

jmknapp's curiositymsl.com is not working for me today - it goes to a generic RoadRunner "what are you looking for?" web site instead. Is anybody else having the same problem? Ludo's "MSL Curiosity - Raw Images Listing" has not shown any updates for a few days now. I may <gasp> have to go to directly the NASA site instead! smile.gif

A little glitch there... just fixed it a few minutes before you posted.

Working on it:) Backend on Google App Engine became way to expensive, so I decided to move to Amazon WebServices.

Early birds preview: http://msl-raw-images.com/

I do expect some refresh issues there, but it should basically be working now. I will replace the old site with a notification/redirection page as soon as possible. Twitter services will resume as soon as the new site is finished. (Just testing now, so couple of hours on most)

Greetings,
Ludo.

Thinking about different ways to torture the SPICE camera-pointing data, here are a couple of charts showing the mast pointing during the course of one sol, sampled every second:

That's from sol 137 when mastcam pans were done.


Attached Image


From sol 141 which included some navcam shots skyward.

Maybe of limited usefulness, but kind of fun to interpret.

For Mac and (to a limited extent) iOS users, I'm making some alpha software available today. 'Alpha' means an early development version. Please note that this isn't finished (in fact it still has a long, long way to go), but I figure a few of the diehard enthusiasts here might want to know about it and follow along as it continues to evolve:

http://www.midnightplanets.com/alpha/

For everyone, my website now includes recent image updates, for Opportunity as well as Curiosity. (And since we have metadata for Opportunity, you can see observation descriptions when you click on an image.)

Amazing! It runs incredible smooth and loads images very fast. (mbp)
And an option to toggle between MSL/Opportunity… a dream just got real.

Thank you mhoward.

I'm not usually going to post about updates, but some of you might enjoy automated Twitter notifications of new images, which I think is working now. You can also get text message notifications sent to your cellphone if you set that up in Twitter.

Dear Joe, I like your CuriosityMSL image browser a lot and would like to suggest a small improvement to yout consideration.
Could you add one more column "Total distance traveled" into the Drive Log page? This value would show cumulative distance traveled since landing for every sol.
Thx
