I had earlier shown Enceladus in the post here: http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.p...st&p=183110

So in this post I'll go ahead and attach Tethys:

Hey Steve,
Thank you very much for this great work. I really enjoy these maps. The best maps with all the names ! A dream for me !!
Marc

PS:
I think you just missed Izanami and Izanagi in the Rhea map.

Marc, thanks for the comments and useful feedback. The features that had unspecified sizes in the USGS database (including Izanami and Izanagi) had been omitted from the map. They are there now!

I also did some rotations with some of the linear features names (those Catanae, Chasmata and such).

This is what I have for Iapetus, with special attention given to the Mons and Montes features.

In the full resolution version I placed the label for Saragossa Terra farther southwest than where the USGS database is putting it, so it lies more squarely in the brighter terrain.

Here's what I have for a Phoebe feature map so far:

This uses the Cassini December 2005 map release PIA07775. There was a subsequent cartographic map release (e.g. PIA07795) that has some higher resolution imagery. However so far I've unable to find this version in a clean (unlabeled) cylindrical projection. The difference in the imagery is particularly noticeable around the craters Amphion and Eurytion.
