Though, "Go make your own" could be considered getting the public involved, I agree with you that it's not the right way to go about it. mellow.gif

If it can be done with MS Paint, I'd be glad to. But don't count on anything amazing haha.

Unfortunately unless you can pull a rabbit out of your hat today it'll be too late for the application I needed it for -- but I'd still love to see it smile.gif

I'm guessing that someone is planning to use it in a yet to be published publication, so releasing it to the press may mean that it can't be used in the publication.

Was the first flyby mosaic used in such a way?

I could give this a try (in the context of a global cylindrical map) if I had the images and navigation info in a convenient form.

Okay, I admit it, this is a month late...

http://gishbar.blogspot.com/2009/10/global...-2nd-flyby.html

<rant>Okay let me just say, that maybe it is just ISIS3 and its MESSENGER-related programs, maybe it is the images themselves (actually, I know it is partly the images themselves. Stupid range-to-target smear, you and flatfields will be the death of me), who knows...but I have spent FOUR DAYS trying to get a decent control point network for this mosaic. FOUR DAYS... and it still didn't come out the way I hoped it would... So let me say this, don't say I didn't work hard enough on this thing if you see a seam...</rant>

Anyways, info on the mosaic is at the blog...

Great work!

I am assuming the odd stretching near the limb is an effect of Messenger's distance being less than infinite.

No, that's an effect of the control point network not doing its job... and placing the "limb" a few pixels beyond the actual limb at the bottom and a few pixels inside the limb at left and top.

Here are a few more:

http://gishbar.blogspot.com/2009/10/more-m...messengers.html

This time I uploaded a global color mosaic, a high-resolution color mosaic, and a very high-resolution narrow-angle camera mosaic that covers a strip along Mercury's equator.

That will make Emily happy.
