Mars Global Surveyor Mars Orbiter Camera images of
Candidate 2009 Mars Science Laboratory Landing Sites/Regions
Data Acquired October 2005 – July 2006 (S11 – S20)
Note: As of 8 September, the MOC team received information
about 5 additional landing sites, relative to the number that had been
received a month earlier, by 9 August 2006.
Thus, for this release, we have data covering S11-S20 for sites
5, 6, 15, 17, and 18. Indeed no data were acquired for site 15
during the S11-S20 period.
These are Non-Validated (pre-Archival) Data
Images and ancillary data presented on this page have not
yet been validated or archived, and should be considered
previews. Within 6 to 12 months of acquisition, all data are
validated and archived in final form with the
NASA Planetary Data System (PDS)
and posted in the
Typically, the labor-intensive
data validation process may result in improvements
and corrections to the image headers and
the table (.tab) of ancillary information. For MOC images that have
data drops in them, the validation process may also result in
improved recovery of the dropped data.
Until the images are validated and archived, the data posted on this page
are the best available.
Each column header in the table below has a brief explanation
(click on the header) of the item listed in that column.
De-striped images have not been re-oriented with north up
