The image data in these browse images have been reduced in size by sub-sampling the original image by a factor of 4 in both lines and samples. Thus, the data volume has been reduced by a factor of 16. A Viking Orbiter browse image contains 264 lines and 300 samples. A filtering procedure was used in generating the browse images because Viking Orbiter images commonly contain noisy data or are missing data.
See the section on MDIM for the difference between the Viking CD-ROM set the MDIM set. All volumes of the Viking contain both browse and compressed images.
These CD-ROMs contain images taken by the Visual Imaging Subsystems (VIS) on NASA's twin Viking Orbiter spacecraft to Mars. These images are copies of the Experiment Data Record (EDR) images. No processing has been performed on the EDR image data. Thus, processing to perform radiometric and geometric calibration, removal of noise, and interpolation of missing data may be required to interpret the images. EDR images in this CD-ROM set have been compressed so that more data can fit onto each CD-ROM volume. The image data can be restored to their uncompressed format using algorithms described in documentation on these discs. Image decompression software in several programming languages is also included on the discs. Most of the planet was covered at resolutions from less than 20 to greater than 250 meters per pixel
