Paper Abstract

The logistics of planetary photography from orbiting spacecraft requires the utmost reduction in electrical picture data for transmittal to earth. Picture redundancy is eliminated by sampling heavily in regions of interest and only occasionally in other areas. The empty spaces in the reconstituted picture may be filled by polynomial interpolation.
