Package for creating images from NASA PDS files

Project description

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) mission has gathered some fantastic data of the lunar surface and, thanks to NASA, all are available for free on the internet.

However, using them can be criptic without a bit of experience. Pdsimage aims to facilitate the extraction of knowledge from two set of data gathered by two experiments on board of LRO:

  • The Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimer (LOLA) experiment which collected high resolution topographic data of the lunar surface
  • The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) experiment which collected images of the lunar surface. In particular, we focus on Wide Angle Images taken from the Wide Angle Camera (WAC)

Highlighted features

Unlike previous python PDS library, this module allows to easily extract data for arbitrarily sized region at the lunar surface.

It is particularly suited for studying geological unit at the surface of the Moon. It also includes some extension to ease the study of lunar impact craters and low-slope domes.
