Abstract

The Cassini Imaging Science Sub-system (ISS) acquired many high-resolution images (< 1 km/pixel) during three close flybys of Enceladus in 2005 [1]. We combined these images with lower-resolution coverage and a few images taken by Voyager cameras to produce a high-resolution global controlled mosaic of Enceladus. This global mosaic is the baseline for a high-resolution Enceladus atlas that consists of 15 tiles mapped at a scale of 1:500,000. The nomenclature used in this atlas was proposed by the Cassini imaging team and is awaiting validation by the IAU. The atlas will be made available to the public through CICLOPS (http://ciclops.org) and PDS (http://pds.jpl.nasa.gov). [1] Porco, C. et al., 2006, Science, 311, 1393-1401.
