Ganymede: Geologic Map Index

Steven Dutch, Professor Emeritus, Natural and Applied Sciences, Universityof Wisconsin - Green Bay

There are as yet no detailed topographic or gravity data for Ganymede. The geologic map is actually a color, albedo and geomorphology map. Since there are only two maps of Ganymede for each region, they are presented on the same page rather than via menu like most other planetary bodies.

Hemispheric Maps

Hemispheric maps are Azimuthal Equal Area Projection, which provides a realistic impression of foreshortening at the edgeswithout the extreme foreshortening of a true orthogonal view.

Large Scale Maps (7 km/pixel)

Regional maps are Azimuthal Equal Area Projection and actually extend 150 degrees from the center horizontally, so they cover more than a hemisphere.
