Initial Global Control Network and Moasicking of ISS Images of Titan
The Cassini mission has returned an abundance of data about the surface of Titan. To maximize the science return from these data and to assist with planning for Cassini and future missions, we have begun the process of rigorously registering images and ancillary data from Cassini's ISS and RADAR instruments into a single, consistent, precise global Titan reference frame and have created the first controlled near global (all longitudes, +45° to -65° latitude) ISS mosaic of Titan. This has been done via a controlled, photogrammetric least squares bundle adjustment.
