Presented here is a complete set of cartographic map sheets from a high-resolution atlas of Saturn's moon Rhea, made from data obtained by the imaging cameras on NASA's Cassini spacecraft.
The map sheets form a 15-quadrangle series covering the entire surface of Rhea at a nominal scale of 1 to 1,500,000. An index for the atlas is included here. The map data were acquired by the Cassini imaging science subsystem. The mean radius of Rhea used for projection of the maps is 764.1 kilometers (474.8 miles). Names for features have been approved by the International Astronomical Union (IAU).
The Cassini Solstice Mission is a joint United States and European endeavor. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The Cassini orbiter was designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging team consists of scientists from the US, England, France, and Germany. The imaging operations center and team lead (Dr. C. Porco) are based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo.
