Gaskell Phobos Shape Model

The shape model of Phobos derived by Robert Gaskell from Viking Orbiter 1 and Phobos 2 images. The model is provided in the implicitly connected quadrilateral (ICQ) format. This version of the model was prepared on March 11, 2006. Vertex-facet versions of the models are also provided.

Here is a set of browse views of the Phobos shape model, with one view every 45 degrees east longitude starting with 0 at the upper left, plus north and south pole views at the bottom.
