"February 27, 2013. MSL Release 1, part 1, Sols 0-89.

The first release of MSL data takes place in two parts.

Part 1, February 27, 2013, includes raw data products (EDRs) acquired on Sols 0 through 89, August 6 through November 5, 2012, for these instruments: APXS, ChemCam, DAN, Hazcam, Navcam, and REMS, along with SPICE data.

Part 2, March 20, 2013, will include the derived data products (RDRs) for Sols 0 though 89 for the APXS, ChemCam, DAN, Hazcam, Navcam, and REMS instruments, along with both the EDRs and RDRs for the CheMin and RAD instruments, and the RDRs for the SAM instrument.

Release 1 does not include data from the MAHLI, MARDI, or Mastcam instruments. These instrument teams have not yet delivered data products to PDS.

Some documents in the MSL archives are awaiting clearance by JPL Document Review and/or the JPL Import/Export Control Office. They will be posted online as soon as clearance has been received, and announced on this web site."

"Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) #1 On HOLD by the MSL Project

February 26, 2013: The first MSL EDRs (Sols 0-89) for Hazcam and Navcam is pending. "



Still not quite there yet! - not in the planetary image atlas anyway. But at Geosciences, ChemCam images are in.

MSL Release 1 Announcement:

The NASA Planetary Data System announces the first release of data from the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) mission, covering data acquired on Sol 0 through Sol 89, August 6 through November 5, 2012.

This release takes place in two parts. Part 1, February 27, 2013, is the release of raw data sets from the following instruments:

Alpha Particle X-ray Spectrometer (APXS)
Chemistry & Micro-Imaging (ChemCam)
Dynamic Albedo of Neutrons (DAN)
Hazard Avoidance Cameras (Hazcam)
Navigation Cameras (Navcam)
Rover Environmental Monitoring Station (REMS)
Spacecraft, Planet, Instrument, Pointing C-Matrix, and Event kernels (SPICE)

Part 2, March 20, 2013, will include derived data sets for the above instruments, along with these additional data sets:

Chemistry and Mineralogy (CheMin) raw and derived data
Radiation Assessment Detector (RAD) raw and derived data
Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) derived data

Release 1 does not include data from the MAHLI, MARDI, or Mastcam instruments.

Links to all MSL data sets may be found on the PDS Geosciences Node web site http://pds-geosciences.wustl.edu/missions/msl/. The data may also be reached from the main PDS home page, http://pds.nasa.gov/. MSL data are archived at the PDS Atmospheres, Planetary Plasma Interactions (PPI), Geosciences, Imaging, and Navigation and Ancillary Information Facility (NAIF) Nodes.

PDS offers two services for searching the MSL archives:

The Planetary Image Atlas at the Imaging Node allows selection of MSL image data by specific search criteria.
http://pds-imaging.jpl.nasa.gov/search.

The MSL Analyst's Notebook at the Geosciences Node allows searching and downloading of all MSL data in the context of mission events.
http://an.rsl.wustl.edu/msl. The Analyst's Notebook will be available starting February 28, 2013.

Some documents in the MSL archives are awaiting clearance by JPL Document Review and/or the JPL Import/Export Control Office. They will be posted online as soon as clearance has been received, and announced on the web site http://pds-geosciences.wustl.edu/missions/msl.

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

Yes, folks, now the nav and haz images are in the Planetary Image Atlas!

The recent PDS release included some NAIF files for sols 0-89. Not sure how absolutely accurate they are yet, but here's an animation based on them, from sol 34, I think the first time the robotic arm was used extensively (MAHLI took some images from underneath the rover):

Oh that is cool. You can see them imaging the cal target and pointing APXS at its cal target toward the end, I think.

Nice! And I see that the rock Jake Matijevic was originally called Musk Ox... I'm collecting some new feature names.

Joe, could you compare an actual mahli image that shows some of the rover with a render from the model mahli at the corresponding time? I'm curious how accurate the rendered view of the rover will be. Of course you may see differences due to the optical distortions in the (real) mahli system.

Well, I don't have a way as yet to automatically set up the animation software to show the view of a particular camera, but as a manual test take this MAHLI shot:

0034MH0067001000E1_DXXX 10SEP2012 01:36:28 UT.

Positioning the RA per the NAIF files at that moment gives this:

A wire frame sketch of the model "movie" camera is shown above, which I positioned by hand to more or less match the MAHLI orientation. Here's another angle:

OK, so, drum roll, here's how the scene is rendered by that camera:

Not too far off! I used the MAHLI focal length of 21mm and f/9.8. The aspect ratio is different.

Nice job! Did you spin the model wheels manually so the morse cutouts matched the real positions?

So as of now, img2png + MSL Navcam IMG's = no joy.

I'd imagine Bjorn's already on it smile.gif

I'm just lost in the flood of information available there; the Mission Manager and SOWG documents alone could keep my busy for a long time.

Question - is there a way to download (say) all the .LBL files for a specific instrument for a range of sols all at once instead of selecting them one by one manually?

You can do it via FTP, right? http://geo.pds.nasa.gov/dataserv/anonftp.html

Well, only to some extent it seems - for instance, when I go to ftp://pds-geosciences.wustl.edu/msl/ (or ftp://geo.pds.nasa.gov/msl/) there are no Navcam entries there while they are available via the Analyst's Notebook. Am I looking in the wrong place?

I usually don't use FTP; I download the INDEX.TAB file in the INDEX folder and use that info to build lists of things that I want that I then use wget to grab. I haven't tried this for the MSL data, but there's got to be a way.
