Magellan Global Topography, Emissivity, Reflectivity, and Slope Data Record (GXDR)

This archive contains the MIT Global Topography Data Record (GTDR), Global Emissivity Data Record (GEDR), Global Slope Data Record (GSDR), and the Global Reflectivity Data Record (GREDR).  This archive also contains documentation to support access and use of the images.
