About the Conference

The MRO/CRISM Data Users' Workshop will be held on March 22, 2009 (the day before the 40th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference) from 2:00 to 5:00 pm in Waterway Ballroom 1 at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center, The Woodlands, Texas.

High resolution hyperspectral images from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM) have been released to the PDS with a variety of ancillary data that support map projection, correction of surface measurements for photometric and atmospheric effects, and basic processing of the data. In addition, global mapping data at a reduced spatial and spectral resolution have been released in map projected form as nearly 2000 tiles each covering about 0.05% of Mars' surface. The CRISM team has developed and tested a number of specialized tools that plug in to ITT Visual Information Systems' ENVI software package. These will be publicly available in early 2009. At this workshop CRISM team members will review basic CRISM data products and their uses, acquaint data users with online tools to search the data set, and provide a tutorial of how to use custom software available under ENVI.

All attendees are requested to register for this event. Please use the ONLINE REGISTRATION page.
