Generating Pans from the Pancam Tracking Database


I'm working on generating MMB pans using data from the Pancam Tracking Database. This will allow all the panoramas to be viewed ground-relative (rover tilt accounted for, with zero degrees facing north), and also I hope it will save me a lot of work generating panoramas by hand. The view above is from the Erebus Pan, generated from Pancam Tracking data - the main difference from the created-by-hand version is that the frames showing the rover have been filled in, which would have been far too much work for me to do by hand.
