Digitizing the Surveyor Lander Imaging Dataset
The NASA Surveyor Program sent seven spacecraft to the Moon. Nearly 90,000 images were taken by five successful Surveyor spacecraft. In 2014, one of the original Surveyor mission scientists, Justin Rennilson, contacted the Space Imagery Center to inquire about digitizing the Surveyor images. In 2015, a grant was funded for the digitization and cataloging images for the Planetary Data System (PDS).
