The Voyager Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) consists of two
cameras, narrow-angle and wide-angle. Images have been archived in
chronological volumes based on Voyager's Flight Data System ("FDS")
clock which is also the basis for the root filenames of the images.
The ISS Tabs
The tabs associated with this page describe the ISS data files and
how to obtain them.
Instrument - Access to descriptive
information about the Voyager cameras.
Processed Images - Information on and
access to new data sets currently being produced by the Rings Node
containing uncompressed, processed versions of the Voyager images.
Raw Images - Information on and access to
all of the originally submitted Voyager compressed raw images.
a set of derived, Saturn Ring, radial profiles from the finest-resolution
Voyager images. Profiles of both the lit and dark sides are included
at a resolution of order 5 km.
Data Set Information
New Data Sets of Processed Images
The PDS Rings Node is producing new multivolume Voyager ISS data
sets, one data set for each of the giant planets. Each data set
contains sets of images and data tables for each
of the original images. These include versions of each
image at several stages in the image processing pipeline:
uncompressed raw, cleaned, calibrated, and geometrically corrected.
The volume IDs are:
VGISS_5nnn: Jupiter encounter observations, where the first digit
after the five is 1 for Voyager 1 and 2 for Voyager 2.
VGISS_6nnn: Saturn encounter observations, where the first digit
after the six is 1 for Voyager 1 and 2 for Voyager 2.
The PDS originally released raw, compressed "EDR" versions of all
the Voyager images on a set of CD-ROMs identified VG_0001 through
VG_0038. These volumes can accessed through the
Raw Images Tab. The organization is as
VG_0001-0003: The complete Uranus images
VG_0004-0005: Selected Saturn images
VG_0006-0008: Selected Jupiter images
VG_0009-0012: The complete Neptune images
VG_0013-0025: The complete Jupiter images
VG_0026-0038: The complete Saturn images
General Image Naming Conventions
For Jupiter, images beginning with 1 are from Voyager 1
and those beginning with 2 are from Voyager 2
For Saturn, images beginning with 3 are from Voyager 1 and those
beginning with 4 are from Voyager 2.
