ISPRS 2003 Voyager Base Maps of the Icy Saturnian Satellites
The Cassini spacecraft will begin its tour through the Saturnian system in July 2004. One major goal of the imaging instrument aboard Cassini is to complete the global coverage of the icy Saturnian satellites with a resolution better than 1 km/pixel. In preparation for this task, high precision base maps are needed. New digital maps of Mimas, Enceladus, Dione, and Rhea are presented in this paper. These maps were calculated from Voyager-1 and Voyager-2 data using newly developed image processing software and improved orbit and attitude data.
