  This global digital map of Mimas 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 Mimas used for projection of this map is 198 kilometers (123 miles).

This map is an update to the version released in December 2005. See PIA07779.

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the Cassini-Huygens mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. 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.
