I've noticed a lot of variations on the MER image data: we have RDR, EDR, and a whole lot of images that haven't been corrected yet (which appear mostly black in colour). On top of this, in the PDS databases, we have a collection of panoramic images and cropped images. I've read through a few papers on computer vision on the MER, but it hasn't specified which data they use.
I'm designing an algorithm for terrain estimation using MER data, and in order to get as realistic results as possible, I want to use the data that the rover actually uses to navigate. Which data collections should I be looking at?
