Hypsometric map of Phobos and Deimos (2012)

Compiled by: Shibanova MS
Editors: Lazarev EN, Rodionova JF
Publisher: Sternberg Astronomical Institute, Moscow State University, Faculty of Geography, Department of Cartography and Geoinformatics
Scale: 1:60 000
Description: The Phobos and Deimos relief map was compiled in orthographic projection (Shibanova, 2011) and published in 2012 (Lazareva, 2012).
Orthographic projection is perspective one with center in infinity and therefore it fits for mapping celestial bodies (Bugaevsky & Tsvetkov 2000).
It is important, that in ArcGIS the projection named Orthographic could be working only on a sphere, therefore we used projection named Local Cartesian, to be the same as the Orthographic projection, but supported on spheroids and spheres.
