As the Winter 2017 school year wraps up for me, I am soon coming up on many months of “free time” where I can really spend time on my Masters thesis — instead of any chance I can get for myself.
But, that’s still a month or so away for me…. As soon as Winter 2017 ends, CPSX field school 2017 begins; then, when I return at the middle of May, I have an annual committee meeting to tackle. Fun-fun-fun!
Blog-wise, this means that I won’t be able to post for around two weeks.
That said, here’s a small update before I disappear to Arizona:
>All named craters have MDIS (Mercury Dual Imaging System) + MLA (Mercury Laser Altimetry) files associated to them — 13 craters in all. There are still 13 or so nameless craters that need to be done.
>I’ve started gathering all the MDIS-NAC (the MDIS Narrow-Angle Camera) image files of the named craters — for use later on….
>I’m hoping to convert the files for Abedin, Hokusai, and Stieglitz to “polar-stereographic” sometime this week. I also would like to try viewing at least some of the MDIS + MLA images in ArcMap before the Field School.
>If I can, I’d like to download the MDIS + MLA for the nameless craters before I go as well….
I have also been working on my Annual Committee Meeting report, and am very nearly finished. The next thing to do now is to draft-up a presentation (more fun).
