Heat Capacity Mapping Mission Digital Source

The HCMM Digital Source dataset includes approximately 2400 scenes of recovered digital data with a resolution of 100 dpi. The original scenes are 715 km wide and vary in length from 715 to 3,000 km. The file size is 3-13 MB depending on the length of the scene and is stored in a TIFF format. The source data was transmitted to seven ground stations and stored on binary magnetic tape. The source data on tape is no longer readable and the only remaining set of HCMM data is on black and white film.
