Computes geometric and photometric information at a given pixel location

Overview Parameters

Description

Campt computes geometric and photometric information at a given pixel location or list of pixel locations in the input image cube. The program computes spacecraft and instrument related information, and other types of coordinates as described later in this document. The user will have a choice of coordinates in which to output the information as well as a choice in the output format of the information acquired.

Note the input image cube has preliminary requirements:

  • The input image requires SPICE information (see spiceinit).
  • The input image cube must be a Level0 or a Level1 ISIS cube.
  • To use a Level2 file as the input image (see mappt).

The point of interest in the image can be entered as Latitude/Longitude coordinates or Sample/Line coordinates. Keep in mind that the input Latitude and Longitude values entered will be interpreted as Universal Coordinates (ISIS default) regardless of the target body. In the output, all positions are in Body-Fixed Coordinates. Multiple points of interest may be specified by providing a comma-delimited flatfile of coordinates.

The following is a partial list of coordinates computed in the campt application:

Geometric Information: Latitude, Longitude, Oblique Detector Resolution, Line Resolution, Oblique Line Resolution

Photometric Information: Phase, Emission, and Incidence Angles

In addition, this application will return a list of other spacecraft, sun and instrument-related information including but not limited to Spacecraft Position, Spacecraft Azimuth, Sub-Spacecraft Longitude, SubSolar Latitude, SubSolar Longitude, and Time information (Ephemeris Time, UTC).

You may choose the format of the output file. The option list includes a choice of a PVL file or a flat file. A PVL file is a text file in label format, while the flat file is a comma-delimited text file that is easily imported into most databases and digital spreadsheets such as Microsoft Excel. Below is an example of campt output in PVL format. You can skim the left column of this PVL-formatted output file for a thorough listing of the types of coordinates, sun and instrument-related information computed when using campt.

Tyler Wilson2016-08-17 Checked in new test data, and added support for changes made to the CameraPointInfo and Camera classes that incorporate new estimates for Pixel/Line/Sample/Detetctor resolution and now allow a developer to control the order in which fields are output in both PVL and CSV format. References #476, #4100.
Kaj Williams2017-06-13 Resolved issue where the default value for the "allowoutside" parameter was supposed to be set to "true", but the default _behavior_ of campt was instead consistent with a setting of "false". In addition, corrected behavior where manually setting "allowoutside" to "false" was ignored. Ref # 2258.

Files: COORDLIST


Description

An input comma-delimited flatfile of image coordinates or ground coordinates. This allows the program to process multiple coordinates in a single run of campt, and output the results to the specified output file.

Expected order for image coordinates: sample, line
Expected order for ground coordinates: latitude, longitude

The "Error" keyword will only appear when using a coordinate list. The value of "Error" will then be NULL unless an error occurs during the processing of a coordinate in the coordinate list. Then, the value of this keyword will be the error message. This allows for campt to continue processing the remaining coordinates in the coordinate list.

For the input of Latitude and Longitude, campt expects Planetocentric Latitude (within -90 to 90 boundary) and Positive East Longitude (with 0-360 boundary) to find the location in the input camera image.

Type boolean
Default TRUE

X

Files: ALLOWOUTSIDE


Description

The Allowoutside parameter influences how campt will report resulting latitude/longitude and sample/line coordinates that fall outside the input cube pixel boundaries.

The default is set to True, which allows campt to return the values that are outside the cube pixel boundaries. For example, a given latitude/longitude might return a sample location of -1.0 (a single whole pixel coordinate off the left side of the image). This is a feature of the ISIS camera models.

When set to False, if a returned coordinate is off the image, campt will fail. This failure can be indicated and ignored within a batch script when only coordinates that fall within the image cube pixel boundaries are desired.
