Astronomical Image Processing with NASA and your PC

Astronomical Image Processing Lecture

Astronomical Image Processing with NASA and your PC is a presentation about how anyone with a computer and internet access can create astronomical art using data from various NASA robotic missions to the planets and from robotic astronomical missions. The tutorial uses as its primary planetary data system (PDS) example data files generated by the Mars Global Surveyor mission to Mars. The primary flexible image transport system (FITS) example data is taken from the Hubble Space Telescope data archives.

The presentation strives to be as platform and software neutral as possible so as to maximize value to the largest number of participants. People attending the presentation are free to follow along on their own computers.

The length of this presentation is between 40 and 90 minutes depending on the needs of the audience. For scheduling and general inquiries please use the Artsnova Contact Form to send your inquiry.
