The database of planetary images (BDIP) is a selection of photographs preserved by the Center for Photographic Documentation of the Planets held by the IAU at the Meudon Observatory in 1961, under the curation of J.H. Focas.
The images were scanned so as to preserve the original resolution, and are available in different formats. Planet attitude is being computed for all frames, and will be searchable through standard VO protocols in the near future.
Digitized and restored images with documentation on origin. Planetary ephemerides are being computed.
