This is a colour global view of Ganymede, taken using Orange, Blue and Violet images (in the RGB channels respectively) from Voyager 2. I made it using ISIS around 1998 or 1999, it's an orthographic reprojection of a mosaic of the antijovian hemisphere. I don't think I stretched the histograms in the component images at all.
I wish I could remember what specific images I used (I'm reasonably sure that I was using the images that start around C2063105). Annoyingly I can't find my notes on it - I'm lucky I actually managed to find the image itself! . I think there were around 39 images in total (about 13 for each filter)?
I do remember that I had to manually match the images - I didn't have IDL or any of that other fancy stuff, working in a UK university that didn't have the funds to buy it. I looked at each adjacent/overlapping image pair in a given filter, looked for a minimum of three match points between the images, and noted down the pixel locations for all of them in a little black book and in a text file that ISIS would read, and then did that several times for each overlapping image pair - it took weeks to find all the match points, and sometimes ISIS would still just not match the darn thing properly and so I had to go back and find different ones. As it is it nearly broke the computer I used to make it (which of course was great for the time and completely laughable by modern standards), and I think the end mosaic (in original .cub format) was over a gigabyte in size! I'd have to leave the ISIS script to take it from level 0 to level 4 running overnight and hope it all worked. I also used updated SPICE data for Voyager that I got from Tim Colvin at RAND Corporation (that IIRC wasn't in ISIS at the time). The resolution of the mosaic is 2 km/pxl.
Probably not awesomely useful for science, but I'm pretty proud of it considering the effort it took to make it - hope you like it .
