Data from Release 51 of the Mars Exploration Rover mission is now online at the PDS Geosciences Node. This release includes APXS, Atmospheric Opacity, MI, Navcam, Pancam, Rover Motion Counter, and RAT data from sols 4411 through 4500 for the Opportunity rover.
This is probably just exposing my ignorance, but how does one scale images from Opportunity? I get the mrad/pixel values, etc., but don't I still need distance to target to scale the image (or part of an image) to a metric like centimeters? Are the random Pancam images of a ball on a stick used somehow for this purpose? By exploring the MERB Notebook I can look at all of that wonderful data from each Sol, but I also understand there's supposed to be a SIS associated with each data package? Is this the same as viewing the PDS label? I was hoping that documentation would help resolve some of this issue. Again, I apologize for my ignorance. I've been searching for answers to these questions for a few days now and felt like it was about time to ask a question.
