Location Map for NASA-released Dawn images of Ceres

Location Map for NASA-released Dawn images of Ceres
Location Map for NASA-released Dawn images of Ceres A quick-and-dirty location map for the images of Ceres released to date (September 9, 2015) at NASA's Planetary Photojournal. Blue and green footprints are for Survey orbit images, from an altitude of 4400 kilometers and a resolution of 410 meters per pixel; orange footprints are for High-Altitude Mapping Orbit images, from an altitude of 1470 kilometers and a resolution of 140 meters per pixel. Because all images are represented as quadrilaterals, locations are imprecise, particularly near the poles. Basemap: ESA / DLR (Thomas Roatsch). Location map by Emily Lakdawalla.
