LIFT - Load Image from Footprint Toolbar for ArcMap28 July 2015
The ArcMap 10.2 Python Addin called Load Image from Footprint Toolbar (LIFT, v0.2) was just released for testing. This simple ArcMap add-in loads one or more images from a footprint vector polygon file which has a text field with the image's local path and filename in the field. To download and installation instructions see: http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=c3ca06f5282f4a5fbff84761c3ea2041
Footprints can be found from PDS Imaging Node's PILOT download page or the PDS GeoScience Node's Orbital Data Explorer (ODE) under "Additional Tools". For ODE footpritnts I recommend the *_c0a.zip downloads which have the footprints in a -180 to 180 longitude system (e.g. page for Mars or direct to CTX footprints).
