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. References for each:
