ISPRS 1999 An Image Map of the Mars Pathfinder Landing Site
On 4 July 1997, the Pathfinder spacecraft landed on Mars near the mouth of the outflow channel Ares Vallis, located in the southern part of Chryse Planitia. Between July 4 and September 27, 1997, the Imager for Mars Pathfinder (IMP) returned more than 16,000 single images including five panorama data sets. Depending on the degree of overlap, approximately 150 images of one filter form a complete monoscopic panorama. Here, we present the results of our efforts to compute a geometrically precise panoramic color image map and an orthoimage map of the landing site from these individual raw images. Printed versions of these maps will be presented at the meeting.
