• About the photographs:

Images were acquired on the ground and from low-altitude fixed-wing aircraft in February, 1976.
The photographers were Drs. R. Greeley and J. D. Iversen, as indicated by image set.

Black and white photographs: 8″ x 10″, scanned at 600 dpi, except set 5 which are 5″ x 7″, scanned at 1200 dpi.
Color photographs: 5″ x 7″, scanned at 1200 dpi.

• Planetary Data System (PDS) Archive:

As part of the effort to digitize the unique collections in the RGCPS RPIF, the scanned images will be archived in the NASA PDS. PDS4 data standards are currently being applied to the image products. Following a formal review, the image archive will be hosted through the PDS site (https://pds.jpl.nasa.gov), as well as this RGCPS site. Once available, the specific web address to the PDS image archive will be listed here.
