Mars Orbiter Camera Decompressed Standard Data Product
Mars Orbiter Camera Decompressed Standard Data Product (DSDP) Archive
Information and Browser for CD Volume MGSC_0003
This CD is part of a multi-volume set that contains the raw image data
from the Mars Orbiter Camera instrument on the Mars Global Surveyor
A detailed description of the MOC archive with information about
the organization and compilation of the database is provided in the
file volinfo.txt . Please refer to
this document for more information.
The image files are organized according to NASA's PDS standards. An
image file comprises a PDS-labeled file containing an "image object".
Image processing tools such as the United States Geological Survey's
ISIS package can be used for further processing; we expect that USGS
will provide support for MOC-specific processing algorithms once these
become better established.

Browse the Image Collection on this CD
You can view browse versions (reduced-resolution images) of the images
on this CD with a graphical or tabular interface. Note that the graphical
interface can only be used to access the Narrow Angle images on this
volume; both Wide and Narrow Angle images are accessible through the
Image Display for Full Resolution Image
In addition to displaying reduced resolution 'browse'
images, the text based interface also permits display of full
resolution image products using a web-browser helper application. The
program NASAView can be used for this purpose. NASAView is a PDS
product display tool that runs on multiple platforms with a common
graphical user interface. See the PDS Home Page for more information
on NASAView and its availability
(http://pds.jpl.nasa.gov/). Once NASAView is installed on your
system, it can be incorporated with your web browser as a helper
application. Refer to your particular web browser documentation for
information on helper applications.
