Whole Orbit Data refers to data collected on board the spacecraft for an
entire orbit and downloaded later.   This is said to distinguish from
telemetry data received in real time - covering only that portion of the
orbit in range of the ground station.  This lets controllers know what
happened while the spacecraft was out of communication, e.g. over the
South Pacific.
