ISPRS 1999 Geometrically Precise Maps and their Applications
We re-analyzed the Viking Mars control point network, an effort, which resulted in accurate pointing data for a list of 1138 Viking Orbiter images. From these images, which have resolutions between 900-1100 m, we derived maps at local, regional, and global scale tied to the Mars coordinate system with an accuracy of approx. 1-2 km. These maps exceed the geometric precision of previous cartographic products by an order of magnitude and therefore constitute important bases for a variety of further geoscientific studies.
