 Mars Odyssey Color Correction

Odyssey's VIS Color Imaging Subsystem is not a "true color" instrument. It does approximate however, and therefore can be adjusted to better accommodate what we as humans perceive as color vision.

On this page we will see what can be done to improve Odyssey's color images
Images on the left are from ASU/Themis, those on the right are my color corrected versions.

Mine are not painted like theirs, but are made from the actual color images.

Here are a few more of these wonderful color images made with the same process,
but without NASA comparison images for reference.
