Data Set history:
======================================================================

This data set is version V1.1. The changes from the V1.0 are listed
below:
    - Full size BROWSE images
    - target names and types revised, mainly for 'CALIBRATION' of V1.0
    - correction in min/max pixel value which affected some images
    - updated EAICD version
    - GEO_NAVCAM*_INDEX and NAVCAM*_INDEX added into the INDEX directory.

======================================================================
Data Set Overview:
======================================================================

The data from the Rosetta Navigation Camera (NavCam) was extracted by
Bernhard Geiger; the data set was constructed and submitted by Maud
Barthelemy on behalf of the Planetary Science Archives (PSA).

The data have been observed and measured from 8th March 2016 to 5th
Apr 2016. The frequency of the navigation slots was of one 2x2 raster
every five hours, with interruption by manoeuvres. Starting from 25th
March 2016 (23:25:00), the navigation images were taken without
attenuation (FOC_NATT). 512 images were taken. In addition 219 context
images and 8 calibration ones were taken, which makes a total of 739
images.

There is no lost or incomplete navigation images.
There is no lost context images but one context image has been taken
with lost rows due to problems at DSS-54.

The orbiter was approaching the comet after far excursion. It was
executing far fly-by arcs with distance ranging from 420km to 140km.
The phase angle was around 65 degrees.

All images in this data set are raw and uncalibrated data taken using
the imaging mode. The data set contains images resolved using both
NavCams onboard the Rosetta S/C and the DATA directory is organised
to reflect this with two sub directories:
 - CAM1
 - CAM2
CAM2 directory is only present if CAM2 observations are done.
After hibernation exit CAM2 was only switched on to confirm its health
status in a check-out. During the comet escort phase CAM2 will only be
used in the case of a failure of the nominal camera CAM1.

For each image, the user can also find the FITS format of the
observation in the EXTRAS directory.

Geometry Information - Coordinate System:
======================================================================

The label files include the following geometric variables:
- SC SUN POSITION VECTOR: The vector from the spacecraft to the Sun
  in equatorial J2000 inertial frame.
- SC TARGET POSITION VECTOR: The vector from the spacecraft to the
  centre of the comet nucleus in equatorial J2000 inertial frame.
- SC TARGET VELOCITY VECTOR: The spacecraft to comet nucleus velocity
  vector in in equatorial J2000 inertial frame.
- TARGET CENTER DISTANCE: The distance between the spacecraft and the
  comet nucleus centre. (Note that also for checkout and stellar
  calibration images the comet nucleus distance is given here.)
- SUB SPACECRAFT LATITUDE and SUB SPACECRAFT LONGITUDE: The latitude
and longitude of the sub-spacecraft point derived from the Flight
Dynamics body-fixed reference frame implicitly specified by the
information provided in the comet attitude file CATT.
- RIGHT ASCENSION and DECLINATION: Right Ascension and Declination of
the camera boresight direction in equatorial J2000 inertial frame.
- CELESTIAL NORTH CLOCK ANGLE: The direction of celestial north at the
  center of the image - measured from the upward direction,
  clockwise to the direction toward celestial north.
- SOLAR ELONGATION: The angle between the line of sight of observation
  and the direction of the Sun.
All geometric values are calculated for the time t = IMAGE TIME
(and not START TIME).
