mercury • this skin by Steve Albers of NOAA, updated 10/28/2009, was "constructed by reprojecting and overlaying three Mariner 10 mosaics created by Mark S. Robinson of the Center for Planetary Sciences, Northwestern University on top of a previous map combining Mariner data from the USGS with Earth-based radar data. A 4th Mariner 10 Mosaic over the southern hemisphere from JPL was used as well near the south pole. The radar data comes from Arecibo Observatory (courtesy John Harmon). This was compiled by Phil Stooke and combined with the USGS Mariner map by Bill Gray. A couple of processed color mosaics from Ted Stryk were also used from Mariner 10. Several Messenger wide angle camera images (inbound and outbound) were then utilized from the first two Mercury flybys. Messenger images are courtesy of NASA/Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory/Carnegie Institution of Washington. In general lower resolution color is being combined with higher resolution black and white." Via Steve Albers' Planetary Maps (Global Images).

See the data page for unpacking instructions.
