Caution, while MOC used the West coordinate system during its mission, PDS typically uses East Coordinate system for searching purposes.

MOC ACCESS VIA ASU:

ASU by ID here:

 

You can open img images with NASAVIEW software available at this link:  http://pds.jpl.nasa.gov/tools/release/software_download.cfm

Alternatively, you can use a free graphics program called "Gimp" to open them and destripe them: Here is a link to gimp:
http://www.gimp.org/downloads/
You can use gimp to destripe images, and you can run it multiple times at various settings, if desired.  In order to do it, make sure your image is RGB. In Gimp, set the image to RGB, by going through the following menus: "Image" - "Mode" - "RGB."  Make sure your image is oriented so that the stripes are running vertically. Use "Image" - "Transform" - "[rotate]" to rotate your image in gimp.
If there is a lot of trash or a border on the image, crop it out, or the destriper will streak up the image even worse.  Then to destripe, go through the following menus: "Filters" - "Enhance" - "Destripe" - "Okay." (If you like, you can change the "width," and get a different result, and you can preview your result).
   You have to add the gimp pds plug-in, written by Holger Isenberg to open the img files.  Go to this link and read it: http://mars-news.de/gimp/
   If you are using windows, then save the file "pds.exe" from here:
http://mars-news.de/gimp/gimp-2.4/
Be sure to save it to your gimp plug-in folder which is probably on your computer at: "c:\program files\gimp\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins\"
   If it still doesn't work, try downloading the latest gimp version 2.4.5, and reinstall.
