How to Find a Mosaic

This collection of 10 CDs, and these accompanying pages, are intended to be used with a notebook titled GALILEO IMAGING AT JUPITER. Here is a guide to how you would find an image mosaic for a given region of interest.

  • If you are interested in, for example, Europa, turn to the red tab.
  • The first pages have low resolution images of Europa with colored outlines showing where higher resolution images have been produced. If your area of interest falls within one of these outlines, note the corresponding orbit number near the top of the page. For example, if you are interested in an area enclosed in yellow, that corresponds to orbit "C3".
  • Refer to this CD index (above) and find that orbit C3 is on CD 1.
  • Insert CD 1 into your computer. Depending on your computer settings, a "Table of Contents for CD #1" page may automatically open. If it does not, open "index.html" in your favorite web browser.
  • On the Table of Contents for a CD, you may either:
    1. Choose the orbit to see small pictures (thumbnails) of every image mosaic for that orbit, or
    2. If you know the name of the image mosaic you want, you may select it to proceed directly to that image.
  • If you selected to see all the small pictures for an orbit, you can choose any one of them to zoom in.
  • Once you have selected the image you want, you have a choice of the full size image in either png or tif format. Please note the size of these images both in pixels and in bytes. Some computers may have trouble with very large images.

    png format takes less space on your computer than tif format, yet does not lose any detail during compression. png images should be viewable in any web browser. If the image is too big for your screen, look for an option in your web browser to zoom in and/or zoom out.

    tif format may be preferred by those who have software that uses this format.
