Updated Maps of Saturn’s Moon Dione


The Jet Propulsion Laboratory continues to release updated maps of Saturn’s moons based on Cassini imagery. Yesterday was the turn of the fourth-largest Saturnian moon, Dione: JPL released two polar stereographic maps of the northern and southern hemispheres, as well as a simple cylindrical projection. These maps are unlabelled and are based on spacecraft imagery (with old Voyager imagery filling in Cassini’s gaps). They’re also available on Flickr: northern polar, southern polar, cylindrical.
