ISPRS 1998 Precision Cartographic mapping of the Pathfinder landing site
Viking Orbiter images were reprocessed using new techniques to produce a precision controlled, photomosaic map of the Mars Pathfinder landing site prior to landing. The difference between the Mars-fixed coordinates of the lander as determined from the precision cartographic map product and that determined from earth-based radio tracking of the lander (Folkner, 1997) are essentially zero, within the accuracy of the radio tracking solution.
