Map Projection and Arc-GIS

Data can be imported into ArcMAP 10.1 by downloading the ISIS Map cubes.
Most images (PNG and thumbnails) were generated with an equirectangular projection. Images that are near the poles have been projected with a polar projection.


We use several different overview maps for the Image Browser.

Data processing

We used the USGS software tool Integrated Software for Imagers and Spectrometers (ISIS) as the main tool to process the data. We used the pre-Dawn shape model posted at USGS and the ISIS software routines to convert images into map-based projections.


This software uses the Dawn post-Survey updated coordinate system ( details).
