The join is exquisitely seamless. Question is, does anyone want a horizontal scrollable, endless map of Titan? I think I'd sooner have a rollable globe with zoom-in facilities! And optional lat/lon markings.

Andy, still unable to "reply" using the reply box on Firefox 3.6.6 - I'm now on Chrome. Am I being quietly told to use a different browser? rolleyes.gif

You're not being quietly told to do anything. I've never experienced any such problem in any browser. Google for problems with invasion board and firefox if it'll be of any use.

Yes! (and of everywhere else too). Globes are great, but flat maps still have their uses and there's no reason these days why they have to be stuck with arbitrary ends (as you already demonstrated so beautifully). The use of a different central meridian here is what prompted me to bring this up again.

It works for me. There must be a setting on your system carrying over with each upgrade that you need to un-check. The Mozilla forums are usually very helpful.

Here's John's version (in post #1) overlaid with a specular map produced from the same texture.
Rendered in Celestia.

Nice map (although I prefer 0 longitude at the edge myself). Small nit - it looks like
you have Ligeia and Kraken joined, which I don't think is right....

Yes, these are nice maps. Perhaps Celestia could be used to help look for future opportunities to view specular reflection?

this got me thinking and took a relook at my OLD map i use
the North pole is posted above

so i did a redo including the radar data ( most of it )
45 north to 90 north orientated to match "PIA 11146"
http://www.ciclops.org/view.php?id=5457

and a high contrast image

for those interested see the shatters.net post
