This image was taken using a MISR camera. This poster is of Larry Hovland, the instrument engineer for the project. He holds color tablets, and is surrounded by numerous targets, each a cascade of bar targets decreasing in size. These targets allow us to verify the digital data stream, and our ability to reconstruct an image from packets of data transmitted by the instrument. More sophisticated tests were used to characterize the image quality of each camera. The original poster is 4 x 6 ft in size, and was hung from the ceiling of the high-bay, where MISR was built.
