This link will bring you to a page of video tutorials to choose from.


Tutorial #1: Viewing THEMIS VIS Coverage

The purpose of this tutorial is to walk users through the process of opening JMARS, loading the Stamp Layer, identifying the VIS coverage of Olympus Mons' caldera and loading image data into the available stamps to check quality. The JMARS Public Release will be used for this tutorial, although the THEMIS Team Release is very similar and team members should be able to follow along.


Tutorial #2: Displaying the Main View in 3D

The purpose of this tutorial is to walk users through the process of loading the 3D Layer, navigating around the 3D version of the Main View and using other layers in the 3D View. The JMARS THEMIS Team Release will be used for this tutorial since the 3D Layer is not currently available in the Public Release.


Tutorial #3: Finding THEMIS Observation Opportunities

The purpose of this tutorial is to walk users through the process of opening JMARS, navigating to Ceraunius Tholus using the Nomenclature Layer, using the Stamp Layer to find gaps in 18m VIS coverage of the summit, loading the Groundtrack Layer and identifying opportunities for taking observations to fill these coverage gaps. The JMARS Public Release will be used for this tutorial, although the THEMIS Team Release is very similar and team members should be able to follow along.


Tutorial #4: Submitting a THEMIS Region of Interest (ROI)

The purpose of this tutorial is to walk users through the process of opening JMARS, navigating to the northwest end of Ares Vallis using the Nomenclature Layer, using the Stamp Layer to determine 18m VIS coverage, loading the ROI Layer and entering an ROI to complete 18m VIS coverage of the region. The ROI Layer is only available in the THEMIS Team Release, which will be used for this tutorial.


Tutorial #5: Loading a Custom Map

A simple way to upload your image into JMARS. Discover the options and what they mean.


Tutorial #6: Loading a Custom Map with Advanced Maps

The purpose of this tutorial is to walk users through the process of opening JMARS, navigating to Warrego Vallis using the Nomenclature Layer and loading a custom map into JMARS using the Advanced Maps Layer. The JMARS Public Release will be used for this tutorial, although the THEMIS Team Release is very similar and team members should be able to follow along.


Tutorial #7: Viewing TES Data in JMARS

The purpose of this tutorial is to walk users through the process of opening JMARS, navigating to the MER-B (Opportunity) landing site at Meridiani Planum, opening the TES Layer and using the TES Layer to view spectral data in JMARS. The TES Layer is currently only available in the THEMIS Team Release of JMARS, which will be used for this tutorial.


Tutorial #8: Using the Shape Layer

The purpose of this tutorial is to walk users through the process of opening JMARS, navigating to the MER-A (Spirit) landing site at Gusev Crater, opening the Shape Layer, creating Features (points, polygons and lines), editing the parameters of the Features and modifying the Features using Shape Layer scripts.


Tutorial #9: Shape Layer: Intersect, Merge, and Subtract polygons from each other

This functionality is coming in the next release version, JMARS 3.6.3 The purpose of this tutorial is to learn polygon functionality. This tutorial will introduce Intersecting, Merging, Subtracting polygons from one another using the shape layer.


Tutorial #10: Shape Layer: Selecting a non-default column for circle radius

The purpose of this tutorial is to walk users through the process of opening JMARS, opening the Shape Layer and selecting a non-default column for the circle-radius.


Tutorial #11: Shape Layer: Selecting a non-default column for fill color

The purpose of this tutorial is to walk users through the process of opening JMARS, opening the Shape Layer and selecting a non-default column for the fill-color.


Tutorial #12: Shape Layer: Add a Map Sampling column

The purpose of this tutorial is to walk users through the process of opening JMARS, opening the Shape Layer and adding a new column that contains data obtained by sampling the particular map.


Tutorial #13: Shape Layer: Adding a new color column based on the values of the radius column

The purpose of this tutorial is to walk users through the process of opening JMARS, opening the Shape Layer and adding fields to select the values of one column from other column using a lookup table.


Tutorial #14: Shape Layer: Adding fields to compute area and center of a polygon

The purpose of this tutorial is to walk users through the process of opening JMARS, opening the Shape Layer and adding fields to view the area and center(latitude, longitude) under the polygon.


Tutorial #15: Shape Layer: Using Shape File Expressions

The purpose of this tutorial is to demonstrate how to use the Java Expression Library that is available in the Shape Layer.


Tutorial #16: MSIP Tutorial: Using JMARS for MSIP

The purpose of this tutorial is to demonstrate how JMARS can be used to support the Mars Student Imaging Project.


Tutorial #17: SHARAD Introduction Tutorial: Introduction to SHARAD

This tutorial is an introduction to the SHARAD radargram functionality. It will give you an overview of how to access the radargram and what you can do with it.
