LROC 22nd PDS Data Release

The 22nd LROC Planetary Data System release includes NAC and WAC images acquired between 2014-12-16 to 2015-03-15. This release contains 67,952 EDR images - totaling 8.6 TB, and 67,952 CDR images - totaling 18 TB.

The LROC Team also released several new RDR products: 2 new NAC Digital Terrain Models (DTM), LOBACHVSKY and GLUSHKO2; and  474 new NAC anaglyph products.

In addition to the new products released, two issues where corrected in previously released RDR products, which resulted in 259 NAC DTM products (out of the 263 previously released) being updated; 111 NAC ROI mosaics (out of 112 previously released) were updated and one NAC ROI (KLUTE_W_LOA) was removed; two NAC Polar mosaics (NAC_POLE_NORTH and NAC_POLE_SOUTH); and five WAC products where updated (WAC_GLOBAL, WAC_GLD100, WAC_CSHADE, WAC_ROI_NEARSIDE_DAWN, WAC_ROI_FARSIDE_DUSK). See the RDR volume ERRATA.TXT file for complete information on what changed with the volume.

To date, the LROC Team has delivered 1,588,361 LROC images - totaling 176.9 TB for EDR (raw data) and over 11,704 derived (RDR) data products to the NASA Planetary Data System. The current RDR collection is comprised of: NAC DTMs, NAC ROI Mosaics, NAC North/South Polar Mosaics, WAC Global Morphology mosaic, WAC Monthly Global mosaics; WAC DTM, WAC Color Shade, WAC Empirically Normalized Nearly Global mosaic, WAC 7-band color mosaics (regional area),  and WAC ROI mosaics. The RDR dataset also include the following products in the EXTRAS directory: NAC Anaglyphs, Mare and Lobate Scarp Shapefiles. The LROC Team has also released a PDF formated NAC Stereo Catalog that contains all NAC pair and triplet observations that can be used for generating Digital Terrain Models.
