HSRC data are available at different processing levels.
As explained in [Scholten et al., 2005] (hereafter S05):
* Ortho and DTM data:
* PDS node:

HSRC data are available at different processing levels.
As explained in [Scholten et al, 2005] (hereafter S05) and overviewed in [Neukem et al, 2004]:
* Level-1: conversion of original data stream (transmitted to ground) to de-compressed data;
* Level-2: radiometric correction of the image data;
* Level-3: map projection of all data;
* Level-4: DTMs and orthoimages.
[Level-4 data products are available] at:
We are interested in Level-4 data: DTM/DEM. In particular, data taken from
instrument's Nadir setup; Figure [S05 Fig-1] pictures the different lines fo
sight according to the different CCDs (Nadir represented as `ND`):

### Keywords
## ESA
The attached document [hrsc_label.pdf] describes in details what we is the
metadata set for HRSC (REFDR/DTM) data products.
In the table below, the keyword/values particularly of our interest to select
the data we look forward to handle.
ESA provides a search interface at
and a FTP at .
keyword | value | meaning
--- | --- | ---
`SPACECRAFT_POINTING_MODE` | `NADIR` | spacecraft pointing mode
