ISPRS 1999 A Database of Viking Orbiter Image Coverage of Mars for Cartographic and Scientific Use
Viking Orbiters 1 and 2 collectively returned more than 46,000 images of Mars between 1976 and 1980. Numerous observation sequences with different objectives resulted in an extremely complex and heterogeneous image set which is difficult to exploit fully in cartographic and scientific studies. Digital databases of the VO images include flat tables of metadata on CD-ROM with the images and the PDS Mars Geoscience Navigator (http://wundow.wustl.edu/marsnav/), which allows graphical and forms-based searching for particular images but does not provide an easy way to compare images and identify stereo pairs.
