ISPRS 1999 A New Viking-Based Precise Global Map of Mars
We present a new global map of Mars based on images taken by the Viking Orbiters. Precise image position information and camera pointing data, needed to produce this map, were derived from a recent analysis of the Viking control point network. The resulting cartographic product is precisely tied to the Mars-fixed coordinate system with an accuracyof approx. 1-2 km, on average – and does not suffer from the severe geometric offsets of previous planetary cartographic products.
