  1. Hi Nathan, Thanks for posting the question. Email me at scholes@wustl.edu, and we can look at some options to help you download from our archive. Thanks, Dan
  2. An optional user login has been added to ODE. It's free and simple to use! Through this feature, users can save product searches, map searches, and product details pages! Past cart history and viewed product detail pages are accessible, as well. Click the anonymous user icon in the ODE banner to create an account or sign in. Additional user account information is found in the ODE help or email us at ode@wunder.wustl.edu with questions. Links to ODE versions Lunar ODE Mars ODE Mercury ODE Venus ODE For a quick example, we will display saving a product search result list as a bookmark. Example of Saving a product search result list (must be logged in): Click the "Bookmark Search" link. Then enter an optional description and save the bookmark. Saved bookmarks are accessed from the user icon menu in the ODE banner. From that location, bookmarks, history, and previous cart orders can be accessed. Here we are listing the saved bookmarks. Click a bookmark to open the saved location to a new browser tab.
  3. The PDS Geosciences Node Spectral Library has been updated to include a recent RELAB spectral data delivery to the existing RELAB spectral library data bundle. https://pds-geosciences.wustl.edu/speclib/urn-nasa-pds-relab/ The additions include 1,436 new specimens and 3,483 new measurements.
  4. A periodic RELAB spectral data delivery has been added to the existing RELAB spectral library data bundle. https://pds-geosciences.wustl.edu/speclib/urn-nasa-pds-relab/ The additions include 1,436 new specimens and 3,483 new measurements. The new measurements have been added to the PDS Geosciences Node Spectral Library.
  5. ODE's MRO Coordinated Observation Search interface has been updated to include an interactive map location selection option. Users can zoom-in to a desired search region and select a point, rectangle, or freehand polygon search area. https://ode.rsl.wustl.edu/mars/indextools.aspx
  6. Release 54 from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter mission includes new data for CRISM, SHARAD, and Gravity/Radio Science. The data are online at https://pds-geosciences.wustl.edu/missions/mro.
  7. We are pleased to announce that the USGS Unified Geologic Map of the Moon is now available through the Lunar ODE map search. The map is displayed as two map layers in ODE. 1. The first layer contains unit contacts, geologic unit polygons, linear features, and unit and feature nomenclature annotation. 2. The second layer, which we call the base layer is a shaded-relief product derived from SELENE Kaguya terrain camera stereo (equatorial, ~60 m/pix) and LOLA altimetry (north and south polar, 100 m/pix).
  8. We have released a new version of our MakeLabels tool. The new 6.2 version includes additional features to help with the creation of PDS labels. The program and documentation can be found on the PDS Geosciences Node's MakeLabels page. Version 6.2 updates include: The output label destination directory is created, if it does not already exist and the user has appropriate permissions. Any template label tags that are not replaced (due to syntax errors or missing columns in the spreadsheet) are listed in the post-processing summary report. The MakeLabel's GUI interface now has a sizeable report window. The report summary has been moved to the end of the processing output report. The option to upper or lower case fields from the source spreadsheet has been added to the template tags. A new template tag allows a single line to be hidden if it's corresponding field is empty in the spreadsheet. (example: <name><!-- |specimen_id| OR HIDE-THIS-LINE --></name>) Show if and hide if template tags no longer need to be left aligned in the template. These tags can be indented and spaced with the surrounding XML.
  9. We are pleased to announce the release of the PDS Geosciences Node Spectral Library website. See the release announcement under the main forum announcements. Feel free to ask questions and provide feature requests on this forum. Thanks!
  10. We are pleased to announce the release of the new PDS Geosciences Node Spectral Library website. The PDS Geosciences Node Spectral Library is a database of laboratory spectra submitted by various data providers. It currently includes spectra from the Reflectance Experiment Laboratory (RELAB) at Brown University. Additional data sets will be added to the website in the coming months. The website allows users to search the catalog of specimen and measurements using a facet search. Results can be viewed in quick view summary or full detail pages. Measurement data can be downloaded individually or through a cart system.
  11. Hi Christy, I just tried the Windows version of the software on my Windows 10 machine. It would not run properly, either. I think we can assume the software has not kept up with the latest operating systems. I do have a couple of alternative options. I have confirmed that the files can be viewed with the PDS4 viewer: https://sbnwiki.astro.umd.edu/wiki/PDS4_Viewer Using this tool, the data files can be exported as csv, tab delimited, and additional formats. Keep in mind that the archive you mentioned is both PDS3 and PD4 compatible. To use PDS3 tools, use the .lbl label, while PDS4 tools will use the .xml label. The XML label will be needed for the PDS4 Viewer. You could also write a script with IDL, MATLAB, Python, or another programming language to parse the data files. The column specifications are found in the label files. The PDS3 label file refers to format files which are found in the archive's label directory (https://pds-geosciences.wustl.edu/messenger/mess-e_v_h-grns-3-grs-cdr-v1/messgrs_2001/label/). The product you mentioned refers to https://pds-geosciences.wustl.edu/messenger/mess-e_v_h-grns-3-grs-cdr-v1/messgrs_2001/label/grs_cal_sh3.fmt. The PDS4 label contains all of the column definitions. Let me know if you have additional questions. Best wishes, Dan
  12. Hi There, I am one of the developers who maintains the ODE website. I ran the same query in the ODE LOLA RDR Query tool, and I received the same response. I believe it is reasonable. Remember, you are just limiting the output to one day. The tool is not setup very well for global coverage searches, but it can be done for narrow time windows. If you wish to query 2014-2019, I would suggest doing a region of interest. That is more of the objective of the query tool. The limited areas of coverage for 2014 and later is expected. The orbiter was in a different orbit and the instrument issues you mentioned. To see the different in coverage for later years, you can use the ODE map search page to filter LRO LOLA RDR coverage to specific time ranges.

  13. The ODE map search has been updated to have product coverage map layers grouped by mission/instrument/processing level. This map layer organization matches the product search page.

  14. The PDS Geosciences Node and the LROC Data Node have established a faster data transfer method. As a result, ODE cart downloads of LROC data will be fulfilled noticeably faster than in the past. We encourage users to give it a try through the Lunar ODE website.
  15. New functionality has been added to the ODE product search page to allow users to select a freehand polygon location for coverage searches. Similar freehand polygon search filtering has been added to the map search page.
