Second LROC NAC EDR Pre-Release

The first Planetary Data System (PDS) LRO data release will occur in mid-March 2010. To help interested users familiarize themselves with LROC data before the official release date, the LROC team has made a second informal release of PDS Narrow Angle Camera Experiment Data Records (EDRs). There are now over 350 Gbytes of raw data available.

Drafts of the PDS Software Data Product SIS and Archive Volume SIS are also available to help users understand the data. Please keep in mind that the labels and/or SIS documents may be updated before the official release next March. The directory structure mimics that of the final release including reduced resolution browse images, histograms, and other ancillary information.

Over 1400 NAC frames in PDS EDR format are now available for download:

Editors Note: After the first PDS delivery of LROC data (on March 15, 2010), the above test products were made obsolete. The data products (and the links to the data products) were removed. Links to the Data Product SIS and Volume SIS were updated to point to the first data release documents.
