Import HiRISE EDR images into Isis cube format
Converts a single channel HiRISE EDR into an Isis Cube file. The observation image data from the EDR is transfered into the Isis Cube data. The observation line prefix and suffix data will be combined into a single Isis table named "HiRISE Ancillary". The calibration image data will be placed into an Isis table named "HiRISE Calibration Image", and the calibration line prefix and suffix data will be combined into a single Isis table named "HiRISE Calibration Ancillary".
8 bit EDR pixels are checked for invalid values in the following order: gaps (255 = 0xFF), high instrument saturation (254 = 0xFE), and low instrument saturation (0 = 0x00). See the following table for what these values are converted to. Once the special pixels have been delt with the 8 bit data is processed in one of two ways depending on the UNLUT parameter. If UNLUT is false then the 8 bit values are simply moved into a signed 16 bit integer without modifying their magnitude. If UNLUT is true, the 8 bit values are converted to their 14 bit value by applying the lookup table and stored in a signed 16 bit integer. The lookup table from the EDR labels contaings 256 pairs of 14 bit values. The first pair is the range of 14 bit pixels that were compressed to 8 bit pixel value zero (0). The second pair is the range compressed to pixel value one (1), and so on. 8 bit pixels are mapped to the corresponding average of the 14 bit lookup table range.
16 bit EDR pixels are checked for invalid values in the following order: gaps (-1 = 0xFFFF), low order byte appears to be the beginning of a gap (0x??FF), outside of unsigned 14 bit range (0 to 16383), high instrument saturation (16383 = 0x3FFF), and low instrument saturation (0 = 0x0000). Since the byte order of all HiRISE EDR products is most significant byte first all integer values within the EDR will be converted to the native byte order of the machine running "hi2isis" unless the cube attribute specifies otherwise.
The line prefix and suffix data for the calibration and observation image are converted and stored into their respective tables in the same manner as the image pixels. The Isis tables which hold prefix and suffix data have four, four byte integer fields. These are "Gap Flag", "LineNumber", "BufferPixels", and "DarkPixels". The BufferPixel field contains twelve integers and the DarkPixel field contains sixteen integers. Other information from the EDR prefix tables such as the synchronization pattern are not transfered to the Isis file.
The "GapFlag" is taken directly from byte zero of the EDR line prefix data and is stored in the least significant byte of the four byte field integer. The upper three bytes are set to all zeros. The byte from the EDR has two possible values, all zeros and all ones. This means the Isis GapFlag value as an integer has two possible values, 255 and zero (0).The "LineNumber" is taken from bytes three, four and five of the EDR line prefix data and is stored into a single four byte integer with the most significant byte set to zero.
The twelve values for "BufferPixels" are taken from the EDR line prefix buffer pixels. 8-bit buffer pixels are converted to 16 bit values in exactly the same way as image pixels. All buffer pixels are stored in the corresponding Isis "BufferPixels" array. All pixel values will be stored in the low order two bytes and will be swapped if the native byte order is least significant byte first.
The sixteen values for "DarkPixels" are taken from the EDR line suffix dark pixels, and are handled in the same manner as the buffer pixels.
Use this parameter to select the HiRISE EDR image filename. This must be a single channel original HiRISE EDR file.
Use this parameter to select the output filename. The output file will contain the observation, buffer, and dark pixels from both the main image and the calibration areas.
Ignore legal 16 bit pixels with a low order byte of 0xff immediately preceding a gap. Pixels like this are normally treated as a gap and converted to NULL. Set this parameter to FALSE if you want these pixels treated as if they were valid data. Set this parameter to TRUE if you want these pixels treated as if they were gaps.
If the input data is stored in 8-bit values, and this parameters is set to true then the lookup table will be used to convert all valid image, buffer and dark pixels back to 14-bit values. This includes both the main image and calibration areas. If this parameter is false then the valid pixels will be left at their 8 bit lutted values.
The label keyword "Unlutted" in the "Instrument" object is used to indicate if the valid pixels are in their 8 bit lutted (Unlutted = FALSE), or their 14 bit unlutted (Unlutted = TRUE) representation. Note: Invalid pixels (i.e., Gaps, NULL, HRS, HIS, LRS, and LIS) are always represented as 16 bit special pixel values.
