LOIRP Status Report 6 July 2013

Dennis Wingo: Austin has been wrapping up the accounting of the captures from Lunar Orbiter II so that we can begin putting together the back end image reconstruction and to capture any frames or framelets that were gakked during capture. We had to recapture G2-061 and M2-019. These will be processed and the framelets entered into the database. If these are the last tapes then sometime this week we will begin captures of the Woomera tapes from LO-V.

The next steps are image reconstruction, then handing those images over to the folks at NLSI for integration into their online database. We are also starting to put together the image analysis to compare our LOII images with similar images taken by the LRO LROC camera to look for new craters. Our student Neulyn Moss has advanced her studies in college and is now starting to learn matlab so that we can do some automation of some of our previous more manual methods of cross referencing images. The new software by the Arizona State done by Mark Robinson's LROC team is going to be very helpful as well. The Quickmap software by their team is a very impressive piece of software for lunar data analysis. Have a look at http://target.lroc.asu.edu/q3/# I invite all of you who are interested in the Moon to play with their product.

Looks like Neulyn and I are going to be doing the Planetary Data System submittal when our student who volunteered got pulled into a lot more work at Ames and has little free time to help. This is all for now.
