USGS, 19711979

Gems of pure beauty, found buried in a government website.

In order, these maps show the north pole, west face, near side, east face, far side, and south pole. Each map was originally drawn at a scale of 1:5,000,000.

These files are meant for use in GIS programs; they can be downloaded here.

You can also see digital versions of the original paper maps (scroll to the bottom for the 1:5,000,000 maps).

My thanks to Micah Maltsberger for bringing these to my attention.

The full series: mercury, the moon, mars, io, and ganymede.
