Craters on Vesta: A Cheat Sheet
A non-exhaustive visual catalog of some of Vesta's distinctive-looking craters. They're all shown to scale (100 meters per pixel, at full size) and are approximately oriented to have north up. They are only very loosely geographically arranged, somewhat ordered from north at top to south at bottom and west to east. For actual geography, check this map.
