To date, the LROC Team has delivered 2,322,444 EDRs (totaling 332.1 TBytes), 2,320,444 CDRs (totaling 614.2 TBytes), and 29,066 derived (RDR) data products (totaling 6.83 TBytes) 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 includes 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.
