The image files (.img extensions) are organized according to NASA's PDS standards. An image file is organized as a PDS labeled file containing an "image object." The program "NASAView" provides a simple display capability for images stored in the PDS format. This tool is available for distribution by the PDS (Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA). Once NASAView is installed on your system, it can also be incorporated with your web browser as a helper application. Refer to your particular web browser documentation for information on helper applications.
