    • Digital technologies serve the smart hospital Digital technologies and systems based on this technology have influenced different aspects of our lives. It seems like every place and every category in which the trace of digital technology is not found is alien to today's world and modern life. One of the areas where digital technology has seen significant progress is health and treatment. The use of digital-based systems and systems and tools that bring smart intelligence to themselves has an effective role in improving the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases; So, perhaps, given the fact that the medical staff and patients have found the necessary readiness to welcome technology, it is no longer time for hospitals to be equipped with digital systems. The presence of digital technologies in future hospitals is undoubtedly a promising entry into a new era in the field of medical and medical care. Application of RFID tags in hospital intelligence In a smart hospital, as soon as the patient goes to the hospital admission, the necessary preparations for patient admission and treatment are provided using an RFID tag. In the form of a bracelet, the patient is under the control and care of all parts of the health center. Unlike the usual hospitals in this hospital, wires and cables that seem to be an integral part of medical equipment, as well as paperwork and even radiology films that have long been used to diagnose illnesses, You will not find any addresses. Most cases and affairs of patients are from admission to hospital and diagnosis and treatment through robotics staff without the need for frequent follow-ups. Diagnosis, examination and treatment in the Intelligent Hospital Diagnosis, shooting, performing diagnostic tests and even performing surgery is also subject to the use of computer equipment. All medical information and medical examination results will be sent to the patient's specialist tablet. Also, using computer systems, counseling is provided to Teacher's clinic to determine the type of disease and how it is treated. Since studies have shown that the use of natural light can play an important role in improving patients' health, all rooms in this hospital use natural light for lighting. The use of smartphones and tablets makes it possible for practitioners to have a virtual presence in different parts of the hospital at any time of the day, and the doctor can prescribe his medications through barcodes that are installed on medications. It keeps an overview of everything that is responsible for doing it. All hospital rooms are equipped with computer communication terminals that communicate through cloud computing systems. All information is from the diagnosis of the disease to the physician's advice to the nurse's station and the prescription of the medicine electronically.  
    • Hi BrianK, ArcGIS doesn’t read all of the PDS IMG format data. Some may work and some may not. GDAL is a standard application for changing formats for PDS IMG data. http://www.gdal.org/ (general information and the link to download) http://www.gdal.org/gdal_translate.html (basic GDAL commands) I used Gdal to translate this PDS IMG data product to a Geotif image. Since the MAP_SCALE field has value of "N/A" in the product label, Gdal cannot recognize the pixel size for this data product and cannot make a successful format change for this data product. The data product label actually defined a real value for the field MAP_RESOLUTION. Based on this value and other parameters in the label, there are two ways to calculate the MAP_SCALE at equator for SIMPLE CYLINDRICAL projection. Both way get the same result of 3704.461337 <m/pix>.                  A_AXIS_RADIUS                = 3396.0 <km>                LINE_SAMPLES               = 5760                MAP_RESOLUTION               = 16 <pix/deg> 1)      MAP_SCALE = 1/180*pi* RADIUS/ MAP_RESOLUTION      2)      MAP_SCALE = 2*pi* RADIUS/ LINE_SAMPLES               I used this number to update the MAP_SCALE field in the data product label, then ran gdal commands below to view the information of this data and do format translate from PDS IMG to Geotif. You can later load this Geotif into ArcGIS.              Gdalinfo D:\test\data\mro_rss\ggmro_120_anom_100.lbl              Gdal_translate -of GTiff D:\test\data\mro_rss\ggmro_120_anom_100.lbl D:\test\data\mro_rss\ggmro_120_anom_100.tif Feel free to let me know if you need more help. Thanks, June  
    • April 15th, 2019 Release 11 of MRO CRISM MTRDR (Map-projected Targeted Reduced Data Record), TER (Targeted Empirical Record), and TRDR (Targeted Reduced Data Record) browse and extras data has been loaded into ODE. This release fills in data from 2006_343 through 2008_039. See https://wufs.wustl.edu/ode/odeholdings/Mars_holdings.html for more information.  
    • Hi, I am trying to load .img data from mro-m-rss-5-sdp-v1/mrors_1xxx/data/rsdmap/ into a Win 10 /ArcGIS 10.5 environment. I have been treating these data e.g. http://pds-geosciences.wustl.edu/mro/mro-m-rss-5-sdp-v1/mrors_1xxx/data/rsdmap/ggmro_120_anom_100.img as img files and keep getting the message "file corrupt" when I try to mount them. I have used a selection of analysis tools to try and find why these files are not loading. Any suggestions welcome please
    • Hi Raj Patel, Thank you for contacting us about your question.  First, I confirmed there are no .QUB files in the THEMIS IRBTR (Infrared Brightness Temperature Record) data set.  Newer versions of GDAL support the conversion of a .QUB file type into GeoTiff (.tif). Here is an example of the command: Gdal_translate -of GTiff D:\test\data\I00818001RDR.QUB D:\test\data\I00818001RDR.tif The first link on the following FAQ describes the tools ASU's Mars Space Flight Facility recommends for opening THEMIS images. http://viewer.mars.asu.edu/faq#t6n18 Let me know if you have further questions. Best wishes, Dan
