Abstract

This dataset contains longitude-latitude map data created from images acquired by the UVI instrument of the Venus Climate Orbiter (VCO, also known as PLANET-C and AKATSUKI) spacecraft. This dataset consists of NetCDF and FITS files.The longitude-latitude map data are included as Level 3 product in NetCDF. During process of creating longitude-latitude map data, pointing of spacecraft was corrected using limb-fitting technique. Detected limb points and information on fitted ellipse are provided as auxiliary data, Level 3x product in NetCDF. Level 3x product in FITS is also provided, which can be used as geometry information file with poiting correction instead of "geo" file provided in VCO-V-UVI-3-SEDR-V1.0.This dataset is procuded from calibrated image, geometry information, and SPICE kernel datasets. Please refer VCO-V-UVI-3-CDR-V1.0, VCO-V-UVI-3-SEDR-V1.0, and VCO-V-SPICE-6-V1.0 datasets for detailed information on the instrument and acquired data.
