Our transcription: By creating a composite picture from individual images, the imaging team is able to see geologic features and regional relationships that were not apparent when the area was studied on a picture by picture basis.
Producing a mosaic is a complex task.
Colors and contrasts must be matched to minimize the patchwork effect.
Once all that is done, we take that composite print, the mosaic itself, with all the scenes, we copy those on a copy camera, and then we make an enlarged print for the Cart. Lab, so that they can have annotation.
Once the annotation is added, then we make a final print that has the legend and all the information that the geologist would like to overlay on that.
