I'm starting a thread here in Mars Express for a new map of Phobos, because most of it will be based on MEX images.

This is the first section. It's the north pole, centred on the pole, out to 50 degrees north at the edge, in azimuthal equidistant projection (i.e. the parallels of latitude are equally spaced, unlike in a stereographic projection where they would get further apart away from the pole). This image is made of Viking, Mars Express and MRO images. Below it I show what the previous best map looked like, much more compressed to save space here. That is just Viking data, compiled by Damon Simonelli et al. at Cornell in the 1990s. The actual mapping is done at twice this scale.

Good work!
It looks, that you used vector fonts now, which are prettier than non-vector versions.
