We present for the first time relative albedo maps of Titan's surface. The maps were made from images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope's planetary camera (295 km per pixel) through atmospheric windows at 940 and 1080 nm. Coverage at all longitudes and between 45°S and 60°N was obtained with 14 orbits from 4–18 October 1994. Each image is characterized by haze with both limb effects (brightening) and a large north–south contrast. Subtracting an averaged image from each frame removes haze… Expand
