The imaging dictionary is a discipline dictionary, which means that its classes will appear in the <Discipline_Area> at the bottom of the <Observation_Area> in observational product labels (and in the <Context_Area>, if appropriate, in non-observational products). The classes in this dictionary provide parameters and processing information specific to image-type data, which includes data produced by imagers, but also instrument like imaging spectrometers.

This is the wrapper class for the Imaging Dictionary. It must be used whenever you want or need to include imaging acquisition or processing parameters in your product label. It has four subclasses, listed below, each of which may be omitted or repeated as appropriate for your data product. The subclasses are fairly complex, so each is described on its own page.



This class contains attributes describing the image itself, including parameters for exposure, filter description, sampling, framing, and so on.



This class contains attributes describing the instrument that obtained the data, including field of view, various mode settings, commanding, and telemetry parameters.



This class contains attributes describing onboard compression.



This class provides a way to document the production and provenance of the image data object specifically (as opposed to the PDS product).
