A map of Callisto

This map of Callisto was created back in the year 2000 from 78 images obtained by the Voyager and Galileo spacecraft. Most of these had a resolution of 0.7-4 km/pixel. The main exception is that using lower resolution images was necessary to colorize the map. The main reasons are that Callisto has not been globally imaged in color at high resolution and the weird color filter combination used for imaging at high resolution.

There is more detailed information about this map and how it was created on another page.

The map is in simple cylindrical projection with latitudes running with a uniform interval from -90 (bottom) to 90 (top) and longitude 0 at the left edge of the map. It should be rendered by projecting it onto a sphere of 2409 km radius or some equivalent unit.
