The disk mode consists of data products from the different processing level bundles (raw, calibrated, processed, derived). During the apoapse segment of MAVEN’s orbit the IUVS scan mirror traces out eight swaths that cover the entire disk and above the limb to 500 km or higher. A single swath is also taken during the outbound side segment of the orbit while IUVS is pointing at the disk.
Software Interface Specification (SIS)
- Description of the instrument and data structures
The files will contain both images and tables. Many fields are direct unconverted copies of telemetry produced by the instrument. The units for such fields, data numbers (DN), may represent ADC counts, encoder steps, discrete time intervals, and so on. See the SIS
section 6.1.1.Table 18: Raw data file structure.
The files are similar in structure to the raw products but they are expressed as spectral radiance in units of kilorayleighs/nm. Estimates of uncertainty are included. See the SIS
section 6.1.2 Table 19: Calibrated data file structure.
Processed data are stored as FITS files with detached XML labels and are calibrated data that have been reduced by isolating emission features and implementing spatial binning to facilitate processing. See the SIS
section 6.1.3 Table 22: Disk processed data file structure.
IUVS data files are stored as FITS files with detached XML labels and contain derived densities and column abundances at the native geometry of the observation and/or on a regular grid in altitude or latitude and longitude, as appropriate. For mid UV and far UV see the SIS
section 6.1.4 Table 26: Disk MUV derived data file structure and Table 27: Disk FUV derived data file structure.
The MAVEN/IUVS data are in FITS format with detached XML labels

Selected data can be retrieved in 2 ways
Downloading annual collections of data
1) Downloading an index, selecting components and uploading your selection.
Indices that tabulate information associated with each product are available. The associated geometry is for the subspacecraft point and for the time of the midpoint of the observation.
a. Select your index
b. Sort and make your selection
c. Upload the URN values from your revised index (note the total uncompressed file size before requesting)
2) Selecting specific parameters and requesting limited data files
