ISPRS 1998 Status of the RAND Control Network of Mars
The RAND control network of Mars was begun during the Mariner 9 mission, and it has been expanded and improved since then. The network is based on measurements of points made on images taken by the Mariner 9 and Viking spacecraft. These points, often the centers of craters, are identified on pictures, and their geographic coordinates computed. Many of the early maps published by the U.S.G.S. used our control networks.
