Listing of Ancillary Data for Viking Images of the "Face on Mars"

Key to Label Information

VO75
Viking Orbiter Mission 1975

PICNO
Picture Number XXXMYY, where

FILTER
Color filter through which image was acquired

EXP
Exposure time in milliseconds

FGD
"Flags" for light flooding on/off, gain on/off, and off-set on/off (1 = on, 0 = off)

FSC
Flight Sequence Computer time - unique spacecraft counter for each event time, equivalent to image ID

OET-GMT
Original Event Time in Greenwich Mean Time, YY DOY HH MM SS

TPER
Time from Periapsis (if available)

RNG
Range (slant) from spacecraft to planet at intersection of optic axis

HFOV
Horizontal Field of View in km (if available)

VFOV
Vertical Field of View in km (if available)

SCL
Scale of one pixel at center of image

NOR AZ
Azimuth of (direction to) North, measured clockwise from zero line defined by a horizontal line drawn from the center of the image perpendicular to the right edge

SUN AZ
Azimuth of (direction to) Sun, measured clockwise from zero line defined by a horizontal line drawn from the center of the image perpendicular to the right edge

S/C AZ
Azimuth of (direction to) North, measured clockwise from zero line defined by a horizontal line drawn from the center of the image perpendicular to the right edge

INA
Incidence angle, angle between surface normal and direction to sun, measured at the center of the image

EMA
Emission angle, angle between surface normal and direction to spacecraft, measured at the center of the image

PHA
Phase angle, angle between the incidence vector and the emission vector, meassured in the plane defined by these two vectors

SUNS LS
Longitude of the sun, a measure of seasons, (where available)

EDR
Experiment Data Record, Tape and file ID

LAT C, UL, UR, LL, LR
Latitude of the center, and upper left, upper right, lower left, and lower right corners of the image (sometimes called points 5, 1, 3, 7, and 9, respectively)

LONG C, UL, UR, LL, LR
Longitude of the center, and upper left, upper right, lower left, and lower right corners of the image (sometimes called points 5, 1, 3, 7, and 9, respectively)
