Here is Phil's new mosaic in a cut 'n' fold constant-scale natural boundary map;

Here I have reprojected the complete Phobos mosaic from the Cornell control network to that of the recent DLR maps - you can see their maps and data including a shape model here:

http://europlanet.dlr.de/node/index.php?id=214

There are some problems in their map - bad joins between images etc. - and attempting to reproject the original mosaic to fit a problematic base image is never going to produce a perfect match. However, their recalculated pole positions and improved shape in some areas probably make positions on tghis version a bit more reliable. Overlay this over the previous one to see just how much features move between them...

Anyway, if somebody was using the DLR shape for visualization, this is the version of the mosaic that should be used with it.

I am now going to wrap all this stuff up with documentation and send it in to PDS.

And, for those of you who insist on the most accurate doodads and nick knacks, here is a link to the constant-scale natural boundary foldable map with the reprojected DLR shape.

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

Very nice! (except something seems to have happened to Opik - a mixup with the special character.)

Thanks for the comments and feedback. Earlier I was using the default IDL fonts and now I'm using the TrueType ones. It's been an interesting challenge to get the font edges to look sharp and do the spherical projection remapping in an efficient manner. So far so good with the latest setup.

The special characters such as umlauts are a bit tricky. With IDL I can get the umlaut to show up when I use the default font and run interactively. However when running in batch mode and when using the TrueType fonts it isn't working so far. So for now I made a version stripping off the umlaut for "Opik".
