  The northern and southern hemispheres of Saturn's moon Mimas are seen in these polar stereographic maps, mosaicked from the best-available Cassini images.

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. Unlabeled versions of these maps are also provided.

The scale in the full-size versions of these maps is 710 feet (216 meters) per pixel. The resolution of the map is 16 pixels per degree. The mean radius of Mimas used for projection of these maps is 123.2 miles (198.2 kilometers).

The maps are updates to the versions released in June 2012 (see PIA14927). The mosaics contain new data from two close flybys of Mimas in Nov. 2016 and Feb. 2017.

The Cassini Solstice 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.
