A global lunar topographic map with a spatial resolution of finer than 0.5 degree has been derived using data from the laser altimeter (LALT) on board the Japanese lunar explorer Selenological and Engineering Explorer (SELENE or Kaguya). In comparison with the previous Unified Lunar Control Network (ULCN 2005) model, the new map reveals unbiased lunar(More)
The nucleus of the Jupiter-family comet 19P/Borrelly was closely observed by the Miniature Integrated Camera and Spectrometer aboard the Deep Space 1 spacecraft on 22 September 2001. The 8-kilometer-long body is highly variegated on a scale of 200 meters, exhibiting large albedo variations (0.01 to 0.03) and complex geologic relationships. Short-wavelength(More)
The global shape and the dynamic environment are fundamental properties of a body. Other properties such as volume, bulk density, and models for the dynamic environment can subsequently be computed based on such models. Stereo-photogrammetric methods were applied to derive a global digital terrain model (DTM) with 100 m/pixel resolution using High(More)
ESA's Mars Express has successfully completed its nominal mission of one Martian year covering about 25% of the surface in stereo and color with resolutions up to 10 m/pixel by its high-resolution stereo camera (HRSC). Mars Express is now in its extended mission phase, during which much of the remaining part of the Martian surface is envisaged to be covered(More)

A Russian spacecraft will be launched to Mars in November 1996. Two German multiple line scanners on board, HRSC (High Resolution Stereo Camera) and WAOSS (Wide Angle Optoelectronic Stereo Scanner), will obtain high-and low resolution multiphase color stereo images for geoscientific, photogrammetric, and cartographic studies of our neighbor planet and for(More)
A new global control point network was derived for Phobos, based on SRC (Mars Express), Phobos-2, and Viking Orbiter image data. We derive 3-D Cartesian coordinates for 813 control points as well as improved pointing data for 202 SRC and Viking images in the Phobos-fixed coordinate system. The point accuracies vary from 4.5 m on the Phobos nearside, to up(More)
Images of the martian surface returned by the Imager for Mars Pathfinder (IMP) show a complex surface of ridges and troughs covered by rocks that have been transported and modified by fluvial, aeolian, and impact processes. Analysis of the spectral signatures in the scene (at 440- to 1000-nanometer wavelength) reveal three types of rock and four classes of(More)
In January 2004 the first European interplanetary spacecraft, Mars Express, was inserted successfully into a Martian orbit. The multiline scanner HRSC (High Resolution Stereo Camera) on board of Mars Express will image most of the surface of Mars in colour and stereoscopically in high resolution. has created software for the automatic extraction of(More)
Galilean satellite. To support the geologic analysis topo-graphic data of high resolution are needed. However, such High resolution (Ͻ100 m/pixel) stereo images obtained by data has not been available from the Voyager missions. the Galileo SSI camera are analyzed using photogrammetric techniques to derive local Digital Terrain Models (DTMs) of(More)
The Mars Express mission was launched in June 2003 and was inserted into orbit around Mars in December 2003. Its main objective is to study the Mars' subsurface, surface, atmosphere and interaction with the solar wind. A secondary objective is to study the martian moons, in particular the largest one Phobos, thanks to a near polar and elliptical orbit which(More)
