LROC PDS Release 2

The LROC team released images acquired from January 1, 2010 through March 15, 2010. This release contains 51,070 LROC EDR products, which has a total volume of 6 TBytes and 50,972 CDR products totaling 11 TBytes.

For this release the NAC-R was mirrored (left-to-right) to match the orientation of the NAC-L (newly released data as well as all of the NAC-Rs of the prior release). This change was implemented for user convenience. Additionally the index file was modified for each product (EDR and CDR) adding new fields to aid in understanding NAC image orientation. A full description of the NAC-R to NAC-L orientation has been added to appendix (C) of the LROC SIS.

The second LROC PDS release, totaling 17 TBytes of data, is now posted on NASA’s Planetary Data System. Images are available from the LROC image gallery.
