  1. This is the seventh release of CRISM MTRDR and TER data products. In addition, the volumes MROCR_2101 through MROCR_2106 are updated with new TRDR browse and extras data products.
  2. In ENVI, you can assign map information to a PDS image based on values from the PDS label. 1. Download an image and corresponding PDS label file (.lbl extension) to the same directory. 2. Open the image in ENVI. It will not be map projected. 3. Select File > Edit ENVI Header and select the image. Click OK. 4. From Edit Attributes, choose Map Info... 5. Click Change Proj. 6. Unless you already have the correct lunar projection, create a new one (steps below assume projection does not exist). 7. Click New... on the Projection Selection dialog box. 8. Enter values based on label. For example, sphere radius 1738000 (notice in meters), projection type sinusoidal, 0 false easting and northing, 74 central meridian longitude. (False easting/northing not in the label.) 9. Save projection and map_proj file. Select newly created projection. 10. In the Edit Map Information dialog, enter values from the label. For example, image coordinate x,y of 1.5,1.5 (the upper left corner) might be 0,50 with pixel size of 400 m/pixel. Click OK to save map information and OK to save header.

  3. Assigning Map Information to PDS Images in ENVI

    User Shashwat Shukla Apr 12 2017 05:07 AM Hi June, I am working on Chandrayaan-1 M3 Data. Product ID: m3g20090205t071411_v03_rdn I am trying to geo reference the data as the method you suggested in your earlier comments, but I am unable to find what should I enter in Central Longitude option in customized map projection settings. I changed the projection type to Sinusoidal, Sphere Radius: 1737400 Easting and Northing as 0 and still couldnt find what to enter for 'Longitude for Central Meridian'. For now, I entered 74 as you mentioned. Then in edit map information, Datum chosen was D_Moon_2000 as you suggested. What should I enter in X, Y Coordinates ? Pixel Size I am using is 140 m as Spatial Resolution of M3 in Global Mode of OP1B data is 140 m/pixel. Is this right? Kindly guide me in the above! PS: I am not able find any detail in label file. The label file I am using is : m3g20090205t071411_v03_l1b.lbl Thanks a lot for your time! User June Wang Apr 12 2017 02:23 PM Hi Shashwat Shukla, It looks other users may have similar confusion as you when working with Chandrayaan-1 M3 data in ENVI, so I put some tips here. A spectral radiance image cube label (*_L1B.LBL) is detached and points to the following L1B data products (Please see data product SIS file pages 20, 81 in https://pds-imaging.jpl.nasa.gov/data/m3/CH1M3_0003/DOCUMENT/DPSIS.PDF): "¢ the single multi-band image (*_RDN.IMG) and its respective detached header file (*_RDN.HDR), "¢ the pixel location data (*_LOC.IMG) and its respective detached header file (*_LOC.HDR), "¢ the observation geometry data (*_OBS.IMG) and its respective detached header file (*_OBS.HDR), "¢ the UTC timing data (*_TIM.TAB) Download all the *.loc, *.obs, *.rdn cubes together with the ENVI headers from ODE to your local drive. You can access the location and geometry information in the *.LOC and *.OBS files and relate it to the spectra of the *.RDN files using ENVI. Below link gives the instruction for basic viewing of an M3 *.img cube file using ENVI 4.3. Read those M3 cube file with high version of ENVI would have similar operations. https://pds-imaging.jpl.nasa.gov/documentation/Appendix_E_DPSIS_ENVI_Users_Guide.pdf note: In 'M3G20090205T071411_V03_LOC.HDR', it looks to me all the location data are in geographic lat and lons in degrees. There is no projection defined in the *.hdr. You can re-project the data to the Sinusoidal projection you defined. Central Meridian is the place where there is no distortion. Feel free to let me know if you need more help. Thanks, June User Shashwat Shukla Apr 13 2017 12:55 AM Hi June, I had linked all the display to access the location and geometry information in the *.LOC and *.OBS files and relate it to the spectra of the *.RDN file. I had come across another method of building GLT files and geo referencing through them. The process I followed in that is by choosing X as Longitude and Y as Latitude, and then keeping the input projection as Arbitrary with Unknown Datum and output projection as you suggested , i.e., Sinusoidal with Sphere Radius 1737400 m , False Easting and False Northing as 0 and Central Meridian as 74 (Unsure whether right or not). As you said that Central Meridian is the place where there is no distortion, how to know the exact value of that. Because I am using the value which you suggested but it might vary with datasets (Not sure). Kindly tell whether 74 which I am using is right or there is some file in which it is written ? And one more doubt, how to reproject the data when the input file is not geo referenced ? PS: Since the *_RDN.IMG file is not geo referenced, so reprojecting it to Moon Sinusoidal projection can come up with error. Thanks a ton for your timely assistance. Regards, Shashwat User June Wang Apr 13 2017 03:59 PM Hi Shashwat, It is not right to set 74 as the Central Meridian for the Sinusoidal projection. I didn't suggest this value before. I think it is just an example case that Jenn put together for users years ago. The Central Meridian of a Sinusoidal projection mainly depends on your own application. It is the place where you like it to have the least distortions. When you build the GLT in ENVI, you could choose Geographic Lat/Lon and D_moon_2000 for both the input and output as below figures. There are no data that could be free of errors. Uncertainties come from different sources such as instruments, measurements, processing methods and others. You could still reproject the data even it is not georeferenced, just with more uncertainties in the output. And the kind of projection depends on your own application and needs. Hope this will answer your questions. thanks, June User June Wang Apr 13 2017 04:02 PM Hi Shashwat, It seems I could not attach my screen shots in the above post. Feel free to let me know if you like me to send 'Geometry Projection Information' dialogue from ENVI to you by e-mail. Thanks, June User Shashwat Shukla Apr 15 2017 04:57 AM Hi June, I did by assigning Geographic Lat/Long and D_moon_2000, but still I m not getting the right output. It would be better if you share your 'Geometry Projection Information' dialogue with me. My email: sshashwat93@gmail.com And I could also share my results with you. Thanks a ton June! Regards, Shashwat User June Wang Apr 17 2017 06:51 AM Hi Shashwat, Please check your e-mail and let me know more details. Thanks, June

    User Aeronstorm Dec 31 2016 05:00 AM Hi, I am trying to georeference, project and mosaic chandrayaan - 1, HYSI PDS 3 format files. It has a .qub and a label fle .lbl containing metadata. Do i need a separate grid file to georeference the raster ? What are the alternative softwares that can be used to finish the job ? It is an old post... But ,hey if anyone is hanging around .... help me. Thanks. User June Wang Jan 03 2017 03:05 PM Hi Aeronstorm, I haven't worked with Chandrayaan HYSI data before, but I would recommend ENVI for your work. ENVI works with multi-spectral and hyper spectral PDS data. It also includes geometric correction/registration, raster re-projection, and mosaicking tools. As for the grid, you can use it or not, depending on your own application. Feel free to let me know if I am wrong or if you have any difficulties with ENVI. Thanks, June User Aeronstorm Jan 03 2017 08:33 PM Thank you June. I did try the data with ENVI and it works fine. I need to know that if the polar stereo graphic projection technique mentioned above by you for LRO LOLA produts can be used with other Lunar satellite images. User June Wang Jan 04 2017 10:17 AM Hi Aeronstorm, Glad that ENVI works for you. The polar stereo graphic projection mentioned above should work with other Lunar data in ENVI. But please pay attention to below two points. 1) Three map projection files related to the definition of datum, ellipse and map projections were saved under the default system folder where ENVI was first installed. It varies on different machines and different versions of ENVI being installed. E.g., for ENVI 5.3 in my machine, it was at "C:\Program Files\Exelis\ENVI53\classic\map_proj" 2) you may need to change the parameters in the string in file map_proj.txt according to your own projection being used. "31, 1737400.0, 1737400.0, 90.000000, 0.000000, 0., 0., Moon North Polar Stereographic" is for Moon North Polar Stereographic projection "31, 1737400.0, 1737400.0, -90.000000, 0.000000, 0., 0., Moon South Polar Stereographic" is for Moon South Polar Stereographic projection In the string, 31 means Polar Stereographic projection in ENVI, 1737400.0 and 1737400.0 are the a and b value of an ellipse, (90.000000, 0.000000) degrees in (lat, lon) corresponds to (0, 0)m in a projected map. You may modified those numbers to apply for different projections you would like to use in ENVI. And it is not limited to Moon. Hope this will answer your questions. Thanks, June User Aeronstorm Jan 05 2017 02:16 AM Thanks June. Can i use the datum created as D_moon_2000 for other projections such as sinusoidal or should i create new datum file for other projections? User June Wang Jan 05 2017 09:42 PM In the string "D_Moon_2000, GCS_Moon_2000, 0, 0, 0", added to file datum.txt, 'GCS_Moon_2000' is the name of an ellipse defined in file ellipse.txt If you use the same ellipsoid for other lunar projections, you can use the same lunar datum, otherwise, change the datum accordingly. User Aeronstorm Jan 06 2017 02:42 AM Thanks June. I am trying to use sinusoidal projection for my satellite image. Should i change the sphere radius equal to one mentioned on the ellipse.txt? User June Wang Jan 06 2017 11:26 AM Would you please give me more information about the satellite image you are working on? e.g., instrument, product type, product ID etc. And if you can post your current projection string for your data, I can take a look. Thanks. User Aeronstorm Jan 07 2017 01:38 AM Thanks June. I am working on Chandrayaan M3 data. Product ID- M3G20090421T082045_V03_RDN. map_proj.txt - 16, 1734000.0, 276.331769, 0.0, 0.0, moonsinusoidal User June Wang Jan 09 2017 10:26 AM Hi Aeronstorm, Is '1734000.0' a typo? The radius should be 1737400.0. I am not sure ENVI works with longitude in the range of [0, 360] or [-180, 180]. If 276.331769 doesn't work for you, you can try to change it in the range of[-180, 180]. Otherwise, your map projection string looks fine for me. And you can use the same datum as above mentioned. thanks
  5. Assigning Map Information to PDS Images in ENVI

    User Shubhra mathur Aug 02 2014 02:26 AM I have prepared the mosaic of Lunar poles using the Mini-RF data of LSZ where the pixel resolution is 14.8 in ISIS software but when I visualize the data in ENVI i did not get the Latitude and Longitude values how do I can get this help me... User June Wang Aug 05 2014 10:19 AM Hi Shubhra mathur, I am not sure if you got my e-mail yesterday. Or maybe you have solved your problem. Would you please provide some more detail about your question if you need further help? 1) Do you process the LRO mini-RF CDR data? 2) Can you provide me the product_ID of the data you are processing, so I may reproduce your issue? 3) What kind of ISIS output you used to be read in ENVI. Does that file have a ENVI header *.hdr? Thanks! June User Shubhra mathur Aug 06 2014 12:52 AM Dear Dr. June Wang, I have used the MAPCDR data of the Mini-RF and processed the data strip in the ISIS software using its different module and prepared the mosaics of the North pole. for example the product id of Mini-RF datastrip is lsb_00260_2cd_oiu_87s283_v1.img. When i visualize this strip in ENVI i did not get the latitude and longitute so i try to edit the map info of this file in the option of edit ENVI header but still i am not able to edit the map info of this file. Could you please help me in this regard. User June Wang Aug 07 2014 10:39 AM Hi Shubhra mathur, I also had hard time to change the map projection parameters in ENVI for this product. If you read Trent Thare's post at the below link, you will find ISIS is currently the only package working with Oblique Cylindrical projection data. You would need to reproject MAPCDR data to a different projection in ISIS for ENVI to understand the map projection. Then you can view it in ENVI in X,Y meters. Please let me know if you need further help. Thanks. https://isis.astrogeology.usgs.gov/IsisSupport/index.php/topic,2698.msg11049.html#msg11049
  6. Assigning Map Information to PDS Images in ENVI

    User pmishra Sep 20 2013 05:21 AM Hi... This was useful information. I am using LRO Lola's roughness data (LDRM_75N_240M.img). I was trying to open it in ENVI. However problem occurs in putting values for map projection. Which value should be given for latitude in true scale etc.? Could you please specify the values to be entered for this data type. It would be too helpful if you please tell me how to correctly open the LRO roughness data in ENVI. Regards- Pooja User June Wang Sep 25 2013 11:35 AM Update the Projection of LRO LOLA Products in ENVI 5.0 classic When working with the LRO LOLA Products, the JP2000 products are read in ESRI® ArcGIS with the correct map projection information, but ENVI cannot read the PDS IMG and JP2000 products correctly. The following steps will take LOLA GDR product: "LDRM_75N_240M.img" as an example, and show you how to fix this in ENVI 5.0 classic. 1. Update the map projection files - ENVI includes three map projection files related to the definition of datum, ellipse and map projections. First check where ENVI points to the map projection files. - Select File > Preference, under User Defined Files Tab, find Map Projection File. - If the right blank is empty, ENVI will point to the map projection files saved under the default system folder where ENVI was first installed, e.g.,"C:\Program Files\Exelis\ENVI50\classic\map_proj\" for ENVI 5.0 classic. This path may vary machine by machine. Otherwise, ENVI will point to the map projection files saved in the path as defined in the right blank. - Go to the folder where ENVI points to the map projection files. Backup the three files: "datum.txt", "ellipse.txt", and "map_proj.txt" before you make any changes. - Update file datum.txt - Open datum.txt - Add string "D_Moon_2000, GCS_Moon_2000, 0, 0, 0" to the end of the file - Save (If you have permission problem to save the file, please copy the file out to another folder. After changing, copy the saved file back to the original folder. If the permission is still denied, please give your system administrator to update the files.) - Update file ellipse.txt - Open ellipse.txt - Add string "GCS_Moon_2000, 1737400.0, 1737400.0" to the end of the file - Save (take care of the permission problem as above) - Update file map_proj.txt - Open map_proj.txt - Add string "31, 1737400.0, 1737400.0, 90.000000, 0.000000, 0., 0., Moon North Polar Stereographic" to the end of the file - Save (take care of the permission problem as above) - Restarting ENVI will update the changes in the map projections. 2. Open the file in ENVI and edit the map information in the image header (take LDRM_75N_240M.IMG as an example) - Open LDRM_75N_240M.IMG in ENVI 5.0 classic - Follow the instructions in the original blog post above to edit the map information - Select File > Edit ENVI Header and select the image. Click OK. - From Edit Attributes, choose Map Info. - Click Change Proj. - In the pop-up Projection Selection window - Choose the projection "Moon North Polar Stereographic " that was defined in the first step - Choose D_Moon_2000 as the projection datum for the lunar product. - Use meter as units - Click OK - We go back to the Edit Map Information dialog. In this dialog, enter values from the label. For example, image coordinate x,y of 1905.6, 1905.6 (the projection center of this product) might be 0,0 with pixel size of 240 m/pixel. Click OK to save map information and OK to save header. - You can follow the same operations in step 2 to edit the map information of the JP2000 products, E.g., LDRM_75N_240M.JP2. This JP2000 product has the same product ID with LDRM_75N_240M.img. ENVI will treat them with the same *.hdr file. If both JP2 and IMG file are saved in the same folder, ENVI will have problem to open both files together. Either save them to different folders or change one of the file names will solve the conflict. User pmishra Sep 25 2013 11:59 PM Hi June, In step 2, of Edit Map information dialogue, I have put map coordinates as 90 N and 0 E. Is it correct? Thanks Pooja User pmishra Sep 26 2013 12:07 AM Hi June, Could you please tell the procedure to open and process this data in ArcGIS also. Thanks Pooja User June Wang Sep 26 2013 09:15 AM Hi Pooja, 1) Regarding your question in step 2 -No. Since you already changed the map projection to the "Moon North Polar Stereographic", and the unit is meter. Even you put 90N and 0 E there, ENVI will interpolate this number as x = 0 m and y = 90m instead of degrees. Also it is kind of tricky. The pole actually corresponds to Lat 90, and Lon in [0, 360] or [-180, 180]. 2) Opening JP2000 map products in ArcGIS is straight forward. Using File->Open or directly dragging the file to the map window will work. ArcGIS will read those map projection parameters automatically. As for the PDS IMG data, ESRI mentioned in the following link that ArcGIS 10.1 supports some PDS 16-bit signed integer data, but still no multiband support. http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//009t0000000q000000. Trent at USGS also had a post about HiRISE PDS DEMs and ArcMap 10.x in the following link. https://isis.astrogeology.usgs.gov/IsisSupport/index.php?topic=3440.0. My suggestion is if your PDS img is not recognized by ArcGIS, try to convert the PDS IMG to an ENVI format, then ArcGIS will read the data in ENVI format. Please let me know if you need more help. Thanks, June

  15. Missing CRISM image

    Hello again. This image is now available at the Geosciences node and through the ODE search. This image, along with 11 other TRDRs from 2010_168, had previously been omitted from the PDS archive because they did not meet the temperature cutoff criterion for IR data of -145.65C. They are now being released due to your request, since they are very close to the acceptable cutoff temperature. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Jennifer
