InSight Mars Mission Raw Photo API Wrapper

Project description

NASA InSight Mars Raw Image API

PyPI version

Python library to access the raw images and metadata from the InSight Mars mission

Images are from


InSightAPI(order="desc", per_page="100", af="idc")
  • per_page = 25 / 50 / 100
  • af (camera) = idc / icc
    • idc = Instrument Deployment Camera
    • icc = Instrument Context Camera


from insightmars import InSightAPI, utils
InSightMission = InSightAPI()

# Make initial request
json_request = InSightMission.make_request()

# Get image count
all_images = InSightMission.get_count(json_request)

# Get x number of image urls (order backwards, from newest to oldest)
images = InSightMission.get_images(json_request, x)

# Get image metadata:
metadata = InSightMission.get_metadata(json_request, image_id)

# Get x number of images + meatadata (order backwards, from newest to oldest)
metadata = InSightMission.get_images_metadata(json_request, x)

# Get all images available:
images = InSightMission.get_all(json_request)

# Download images:
utils.download_image(images, "images/", "sequential")

# Get specific sol
get_sol(data, sol)

# Get sols
get_sols(data, start_sol, end_sol)
