SCALED_PIXEL_WIDTH image resolution in meters/pixel at center of image FLOAT(8,2) PDS cumindex.tab
PIXEL_ASPECT_RATIO Pixel aspect ratio (pixel height/pixel width) at center of image. The image's center pixel is projected on the ground and its linear extents are ratioed, so any effects of emission angle and line time are modelled.

EDIT_MODE_ID first pixel stored from detector, zero-based SMALLINT(4) unsigned PDS cumindex.tab
ENCODING_TYPE A description of the compression applied to this image, of the form string-parms, where <string> is taken from the set {MOC-NONE,MOC-PRED,MOC-DCT,MOC-WHT} and <parms> are additional parameters describing the algorithm-specific compression parameters. VARCHAR(14) PDS cumindex.tab
SCALED_IMAGE_WIDTH image width from left to right image edge in km FLOAT(7,2) PDS cumindex.tab

SLANT_DISTANCE range from s/c to intersection of view vector with target body in km FLOAT(7,2) PDS cumindex.tab
USAGE_NOTE Because of the MOC's line-scan nature, depending on the orientation and sense of rotation of the spacecraft and the optical inversion properties of the camera system involved, MOC images can either be normal or flipped left-for-right (independent of whether the image is north up or south up.) This flag will be 'F' if the image should be flipped left-to-right, and 'N' if it is already in normal form. VARCHAR(1) PDS cumindex.tab
NORTH_AZIMUTH The angle in degrees clockwise from the reference axis of the image (a line from the center to the right edge of the image) to the direction to the north pole of the target body. If the USAGE_NOTE described previously is 'F', the image should be flipped prior to applying this angle. FLOAT(6,2) PDS cumindex.tab
SUB_SOLAR_AZIMUTH The angle in degrees clockwise from the reference axis of the image (a line from the center to the right edge of the image) to the direction to the subsolar point on the target body. If the USAGE_NOTE described previously is 'F', the image should be flipped prior to applying this angle. FLOAT(6,2) PDS cumindex.tab
SUB_SOLAR_LONGITUDE west longitude of subsolar point in degrees FLOAT(6,2) PDS cumindex.tab
SUB_SOLAR_LATITUDE planetographic latitude of subsolar point in degrees FLOAT(6,2) PDS cumindex.tab
SUB_SPACECRAFT_LONGITUDE west longitude of subspacecraft point in degrees FLOAT(6,2) PDS cumindex.tab
SUB_SPACECRAFT_LATITUDE planetographic latitude of subspacecraft point in degrees FLOAT(6,2) PDS cumindex.tab
SOLAR_DISTANCE distance from the center of the image on the target body to the center of the sun in km FLOAT(11,1) PDS cumindex.tab
SOLAR_LONGITUDE solar longitude ('L sub s') at time of image in degrees from martian vernal equinox, as computed by the method in 'Accurate analytic representations of solar time and seasons on Mars with applications to the Pathfinder/Surveyor missions', Michael Allison, Geophysical Reseach Letters 24, 16, pp 1967-1970 (August 15, 1997) FLOAT(6,2) PDS cumindex.tab
LOCAL_TIME Local True Solar Time in decimal hours from midnight at the center of the image, as computed by the method in 'Accurate analytic representations of solar time and seasons on Mars with applications to the Pathfinder/Surveyor missions', Michael Allison, Geophysical Reseach Letters 24, 16, pp 1967-1970 (August 15, 1997). An 'hour' in this context is an angular measure of 15 degrees of solar motion. FLOAT(5,2) PDS cumindex.tab
IMAGE_SKEW_ANGLE The image skew angle is the absolute value, in degrees, of the angle between the left edge (a line between the lower left and upper left corners) and the bottom edge (a line between the lower left and lower right corners) of the image, where the edges are projected on the target body. For images whose footprints are exactly rectangular, this angle will be 90 degrees. Departures from 90 degrees indicate a non-rectangular image footprint, caused by slews of the spacecraft during imaging outside the orbit plane or off-nadir pointing, or both. FLOAT(5,1) PDS cumindex.tab
RATIONALE_DESC A text description of the scientific purpose for the acquisition of this image. For routine mapping operations, this will most likely be the goal of the image as targeted (which may not be met if the image missed its target significantly, the atmosphere was cloudy, gain parameters were set inappropriately, etc.) VARCHAR(80) PDS cumindex.tab
DATA_QUALITY_DESC 'OK' if all fragments of the image are received without detected checksum or sequence errors, and 'ERRORS' otherwise. VARCHAR(6) PDS cumindex.tab
ORBIT_NUMBER orbit number as defined by the MGS Project MEDIUMINT(5) unsigned PDS cumindex.tab
LAST_UPDATE This column records the last time that a record was updated. TIMESTAMP db server
