1. Introduction

  This data set contains science, calibration and checkout images
  acquired by the OSIRIS Wide Angle Camera system on the Rosetta

  The images were acquired during the EARTH SWING-BY 2 mission phase
  covering the period from 2007-09-13 to 2008-01-28.

  For details please see:

    CATALOG/MISSION.CAT  for a description of the Rosetta mission
    CATALOG/INSTHOST.CAT for a description of the Rosetta spacecraft
    CATALOG/OSIRIS.CAT   for a description of the OSIRIS instrument
    CATALOG/DATASET.CAT  for a detailed description of the dataset
    CATALOG/TARGETS.CAT  for a description of the observed targets

  For a quick look overview of the dataset please see:

    EXTRAS/AAREADME.HTM    for a HTLM based browse index
    EXTRAS/ACTIVITY.TAB    for a detailed activity overview of the mission phase

  A detailed description of the instrument can be found in:


  An overview description of the calibration can be found in:


  A database of usefull information about the OSIRIS instruments
  can be found in:

    CALIB/*         (See CALINFO.TXT)

  And the actual IDL software source code for calibrating OSIRIS images
  can be found in:


2. File Formats

  The OSIRIS images are stored as data files with embedded PDS label. The data is stored as:
    a. two dimensional unsigned integer (LSB_UNSIGNED_INTEGER) 16 bit data for the CODMAC level 2 data
    b. two dimensional intel float (PC_REAL) 32 bit data for the CODMAC level 3 to N data

    The data is referenced using a PDS IMAGE object.

    The detailed description of the data file format can be found in:
