  The northern and southern hemispheres of Dione are seen in these polar stereographic maps, mosaicked from the best-available clear-filter images from NASA's Cassini and Voyager missions.

Each map is centered on one of the poles and surface coverage extends to the equator. Grid lines show latitude and longitude in 30-degree increments. The scale in the full-size versions of these maps is 153 meters (500 feet) per pixel. The resolution of the map is 64 pixels per degree. The mean radius of Dione used for projection of these maps is 563 kilometers (350 miles).

The Cassini Equinox 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.
