Import PDS formatted MOC image cube into Isis format cube



This program will import a PDS formatted MOC image into an Isis cube. The input file can be in MOC compressed format (extension = ".imq" normally) or uncompressed (extension = "img"). The program does not use the extension to determine if the file is compressed or not. It uses the label keyword "ENCODING_TYPE".
