Tips For Media Use of MGS MOC "Mars Picture of the Day"
- Please read the
MSSS Image Use Policy
to determine whether your planned use of an image meets the critera for
News Media, Educational, Commerical, or other.
- Please credit MOC images to "NASA/JPL/Malin Space Science Systems" or "NASA/JPL/MSSS".
- Captions accompanying MOC image releases, including "Picture of the Day,"
are written by Mars scientists employed by Malin Space Science Systems. Captions should not be plagiarized. Please credit captions to "NASA/JPL/Malin Space Science Systems" or "NASA/JPL/MSSS".
- "Picture of the Day" was begun in April 2003. Over time, we have learned more
about the needs and interests of the public served by these images. Starting with
the "Picture of the Day" for August 13, 2003, all subsequent "Picture of the Day"
images are presented on the msss.com web site at their full resolution (for large
images, this translates to longer download times). For non map-projected images,
the resolution you see is exactly as it was received from Mars. For map-projected
images (including color, global views) and other "colorized" images, the picture
presented on the MSSS web site, again, is the highest resolution available
(typically, these are resampled at a resolution higher than was received from
Mars). Media requiring "higher resolution" should recognize that the picture
provided here is the highest resolution that exists.
- Media requiring 300 dpi (or other) for reproduction of images in print need
to resample the full-resolution image to the required size.
