Survey scan data sizes revealed!

So Jool takes a long time and a lot of electricity to scan, amirite?

I was wondering about the differences in time and power consumption when survey-scanning different bodies, but all I could find was the general idea that it generates data and has to be transmitted, like science. But how much data? So I scanned every body and did some math and here you go!

Replicated here, but this is all hand-entered so don't trust it completely:
