Eros MSI Images with Geometry Backplanes

PDS4 Bundle


    This data set contains data products for 93,397 images obtained by the Multi-Spectral Imager (MSI) of the Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) mission during the orbital phase at asteroid 433 Eros. The data products include geometric and geophysical information for each pixel. The data products are in the form of backplanes, stored in the FITS image format. There is one backplane file for each MSI image. Each of the MSI backplane files is a 16-band image cube. The bands of the cube contain the information detailed below calculated for the center of each pixel: 1: Pixel values (I/F) of the original FITS images delivered to the PD... ...Show More
