ISPRS 1998 Mars Lander Cameras for Pathfinder, Polar Lander, and Beyond
The Imager for Mars Pathfinder (IMP) returned 16,000 pictures of the Ares Vallis landing site. These images have been photometrically corrected, mosaicked, and geometrically corrected into maps of various kinds. The resolution of the images is 1 mrad/pixel and the height of the camera above the ground is about 1.8 m. With stereoscopic vision (baseline separation of 15 cm) a digital terrain map can be produced. We are in the process of making hyperspectral cubes with the 12 filters spanning the range from 440 to 1000 nm, correcting for the parallax between left and right eyes.
