Hot off the press, an experimental map of the northern hemisphere of Comet Borrelly - as with the other maps above, this isn't Itokawa, but it shows the same technique. This will be in my LPSC poster next year.

I'll put this here even though it's not Itokawa because a series of posts started out with Itokawa and then illustrated maps of other elongated objects. This is the nucleus of Comet Hartley 2 in the same projection as the preceding maps, except that Hartley 2 is rotating about its long axis, not its short axis. Peter Thomas and colleagues have a paper in Icarus describing its rotation and shape, including maps which form the basis for the new mapping done here.
