Not that I mean to compare Itokawa to a sausage, just to show you behind the scenes of making the map, along with the map itself, here, rather than continue to clog up the Hayabusa Return to Earth thread.
Here is the map itself, so far along as the pasting in of the mosaic has gone.
And here is are two shots of the folded up map, compared with the computer-made model. Note the arrow to one of the "ears." The first try of the map failed to capture the ear, so I replotted the boundary, as seen in the Tracing image.

Well, several misalignments in the graticles at the folding seams, and one loss of constant scale at the edge -- my pen must have slipped or some other by-hand error. A seam slice into the map between points f & j on the body side was needed to match things up.
This shows both valley-bound versions A and B folded up. "A" has the image on it, "B" is the gridded object.
Note that the objects do not look like the asteroid. That's because the boundary tree is very short and not well spread across the object. Still folds up, though. Odd, no?

Visit My Website for the polished image of the handout for next week's LPSC 41.

Here also is a comparison of the ridge-bound map with some JAXA shots of the asteroid; [EDIT] that's the paper model on the top, the photos of the actual asteroid on the bottom.
