A detailed description of the Clementine NIR DIM with information about the organization and compilation of the database is provided in the file: volinfo.htm. Please refer to this document for more information.
The Clementine NIR Mosaic was compiled for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) by the United States Geological Survey (USGS). See the acknowledgements section of the document/volinfo files for a complete list of those who contributed.
The Clementine NIR DIM can be obtained through the following PDS Imaging Node online resources: PDS Planetary Image Atlas (http://pds-imaging.jpl.nasa.gov/Admin/resources/cd_clementine.html#clmBASE) and/or PDS Map-a-Planet (http://www.mapaplanet.org/explorer/moon.html). DVD volumes can be obtained by contacting Lisa Gaddis, U.S. Geological Survey, 2255 North Gemini Drive, Flagstaff, AZ 86001 [telephone: (928) 556-7053, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org].
The image files are organized according to NASA's PDS standards. An image file (tile) is organized as a PDS labeled file containing an "image object". Additionally, each image file is associated with an Integrated Software for Imagers and Spectrometers (ISIS) "qube object" detached label. This detached label allows for images to be accessed and processed in the ISIS system (available through the USGS, Flagstaff, AZ). Within ISIS, users should reference the detached label file when accessing image files on this CD set. Other access tools are available that support the Clementine NIR DIM. A software tool called "MapMaker" enables users to extract seamless mosaics of images for any latitude-longitude region and at a variety of scales in different map projections. MapMaker, available for distribution through the PDS Imaging Node, can output images in a variety of formats common to the user community (gif, jpeg, tiff, PDS). Also, see the "NASAView" discussion below in the "Image Display for Full Resolution Image Products" section.
Digital storage requirements for the full resolution image products range from ~45MB to ~84MB. These images have the 'img' filename extension and are found in the 'data' directory.
The CD contents and directory structure are presented below. Directories (folders) are indicated by boldface type. Documentation and other ancillary support files may be viewed by selecting (clicking) the desired filename. Detailed documentation regarding the Clementine NIR datset are available in the aareadme (top level directory) and volinfo (document directory) files.
The browse/color, browse/ratio, and browse/2000nm sub-directories each contain the following directory structure:
