This global digital map of Dione was created using data taken by the Cassini spacecraft, with gaps in coverage filled in by Voyager spacecraft data. The map is an equidistant projection and has a scale of 400 meters (1,310 feet) per pixel.
The mean radius of Dione used for projection of this map is 560 kilometers (348 miles).
This map is an update to the version released in December 2005. See PIA07776.
