Cassini-Huygens
First global, topographic mapping of Titan
05/16/13

 

These polar maps show the first global, topographic mapping of Saturn's moon Titan, using data from NASA's Cassini mission. To create these maps, scientists employed a mathematical process called splining, which uses smooth curved surfaces to "join" the areas between grids of existing topography profiles obtained by Cassini's radar instrument.Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/ASI/JHUAPL/Cornell/Weizmann
