LROC 38C PDS Data Release

The 38C LROC Planetary Data System release includes NAC and WAC images acquired from 2019-02-16 through 2019-03-15. This release contains 17,137 EDR images - totaling 2.3 TBytes, and 17,137 CDR images - totaling 4.8 TBytes.

This release includes a new set of Hapke Parameter maps, two new NAC photometric sites, six new NAC DTMs, thirty new NAC ROIs, re-releases one NAC ROI to improve the mosaic, re-releases ten NAC DTMs to improve the DTM mosaic, re-releases fourteen shapefiles with current data, and removes two shapefiles that are superceded by the detailed shapefiles. Details and a full product listing are available in the ERRATA.TXT.

To date, the LROC Team has delivered 2,559,622 EDRs (totaling 376.0 TBytes), 2,557,606 CDRs (totaling 695.3 TBytes), and 29,772 derived (RDR) data products (totaling 7.79 TB) to the NASA Planetary Data System. The current RDR collection is comprised of: NAC DTMs, NAC ROI Mosaics, NAC North/South Polar Mosaics, WAC Global Morphology mosaic, WAC Monthly Global mosaics; WAC DTM, WAC Color Shade, WAC Empirically Normalized Nearly Global mosaic, WAC 7-band color mosaics (regional area), and WAC ROI mosaics. The RDR dataset also includes the following products in the EXTRAS directory: NAC Anaglyphs, Mare and Lobate Scarp Shapefiles. The LROC Team has also released a PDF formated NAC Stereo Catalog that contains all NAC pair and triplet observations that can be used for generating Digital Terrain Models.
