A couple of weeks ago I posted a neat cut-and-glue model of Mars' moon Phobos; here, for your enjoyment, is a companion map of the other moon, Deimos. I haven't had a chance to finish folding this one yet. Thanks again to Chuck Clark for his nifty maps!

Constant-scale natural boundary map of Deimos
This map of Deimos can be cut out and assembled into a good three-dimensional representation of the odd-shaped moon of Mars. The map was produced through a technique called constant-scale natural boundary mapping, developed by Georgia architect Chuck Clark.
