To cast eyes on the uncharted terrains of other worlds is one of the greatest lures of planetary exploration. Like the terrestrial cartographers of old who assembled the best maps of the day from the explorations and surveillance of distant lands by sea-faring ships, we too routinely take our images of the bodies in the Saturn system and compose them into maps. Over the course of the Cassini mission, as our coverage of these bodies has improved, so have our maps.|
Here we have collected together our best and most recent maps of the Saturnian moons. Map-making is an art, and the fidelity of the outcome depends on the care with which the composite images are reprojected and stitched together. The maps that have received the greatest care in their construction and drafting are called `cartographic'; they too are posted here.
Future explorers to this sector of our solar system will one day rely on these charts and their derivatives to find their way among the moons of Saturn.
