|“as1120pyramid20smallue2.jpg”The original Daedalus Ziggurat image as I found it on the web|
My original pyramid image “as1120pyramid20smallue2.jpg” came from the “Call of Duty Zombies forum. The original page where I found it seems to have disappeared, but there is another page in the forum with a colorized version of the image: http://callofdutyzombies.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18032. However, the Google cache page still shows that the original un-colorized image was posted there recently, but has since been removed or the link is broken.
The current NASA scan available online comes from: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/resources/apollo/frame/?AS11-38-5564 and is the full 3 MB “Print Resolution” version.
Now in terms of Mr. Robbins “analysis” of the images, I will simply say that it leaves a lot to be desired. Let me also state that I am no Photoshop expert, like he claims to be, and lack the artistic talent to create anything like Daedalus Ziggurat. I found the image, posted by someone else, period. I enhanced it as best I could and passed it on to Richard for his opinion.
“For the record, I took the original LPI image and rotated it clockwise 90°. I knew this was the starting point because of the shadows of craters in the image Hoagland presented. After finding the location, I rotated Hoagland’s image by 10.96°, and then I scaled Hoagland’s by 85.28%.”
|Original Ziggurat image (above) and reduced version (below) readers may judge for themselves which one is "better," but obviously the scaled down image is much worse and contains less information than the original.|
