Digitizing the Surveyor Lander Imaging Dataset

The Surveyor program was an unmanned NASA mission to the moon, which sent seven spacecraft missions to the moon. Of the five successful missions almost 90,000 images were taken. In 2014 one of the original Surveyor mission scientists, Justin Rennilson contacted the Space Imagery Center to see about digitizing the images. In 2015 a grant was funded for the digitization and cataloging images for the Planetary Data System (PDS).
