Update for ASU THEMIS Day and Night Mosaics

14 October 2014

ASU has recenty released updates for the THEMIS IR day-time and night-time mosaics. The day-time mosaic is a nice incremental release (from version 11.6 to 12). The night-time mosaic a recommended major release (now at version 14). While the ISIS cube format can be used in GDAL and ArcMap we will make slightly lossy Jpeg2000 versions available as ancillary downloads from the links above.

Note that these mosaics are still only semi-controlled. For the recommended fully controlled THEMIS IR day/night-time quad mosaics by USGS, see this site. This project is still in progress so not all quads are completed.
