LROC 41C PDS Data Release

The 41C LROC Planetary Data System release includes NAC and WAC images acquired from 2019-11-16 through 2019-12-15. This release contains 12,746 EDR images - totaling 1.4 TBytes, and 12,746 CDR images - totaling 3.0 TBytes.

This release also includes 34 new NAC ROIs, 24 new NAC DTMs, 3 new NAC photometric series, 12 NAC ROIs with updated projections, 1 NAC ROI with updated PDS label comments, 1 NAC DTM updated to apply the smoothing filter, and 16 updated shapefiles to reflect the current data. Details are available in the ERRATA.TXT.

To date, the LROC Team has delivered 2,730,292 EDRs (totaling 403.5 TBytes), 2,728,276 CDRs (totaling 746.1 TBytes), and 30,866 derived (RDR) data products (totaling 9.70 TBytes) 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.
