Map Projection and Arc-GIS
Data can be imported into ArcMAP 10.1 by downloading the ISIS Map cubes.
Images (PNG and thumbnails) were generated with an equirectangular projection.
The overview map is a decreased resolution image of this
We used the USGS software tool
Integrated Software for Imagers and Spectrometers (ISIS)
as the main tool to process the data. We used a sphere with a radius of 1188.3 km for the shape and the ISIS software routines to convert images into map-based projections.
