Having a bit of time free I have embarked on a new global photomosaic map of asteroid 25143 Itokawa. Follow its construction here as I go. I'm hoping it won't take more than 4 to 6 weeks as other duties call. The mosaic will eventually go into PDS.

This follows the work I did on a map made from rendered images derived from Bob Gaskell's shape model. That had to be the first step because the control I'm using is derived from published lat-long grids superimposed on his rendered images. Now each individual image will be reprojected to fit that map. The large local relief will make it impossible to make all seams invisible, however.

First step: the north polar area. The outer edge is at 40 N, with 90 N at the middle and 0 longitude at the top.
