Clementine LIDAR Data

July 5, 2023. The Clementine lidar data set has been migrated to the PDS4 standard. The original PDS3 data products, labels, and documentation remain available in their original archive volume. The only change is that PDS4 labels and documentation have been added to the archives. The original data files are unchanged. Please see geo_notes_and_errata.pdf for more information.

This saved data set contains raw LIDAR (laser ranging) data from the Clementine Mission to the Moon. This data was used to derive the Clementine Topography data set. A PDS saved data set preserves useful data that would otherwise be lost, but it may not meet the standards for documentation and supporting materials that apply to regular PDS archives.
