Mars Transverse Mercator (MTM) Map Series Updated with Planetocentric Grid (PDF Download Available)

The Mars Transverse Mercator (MTM) Map Series has been used to publish geologic and controlled photomosaic maps of Mars since 1984. Traditionally maps were published using planetographic coordinates with positive west longitude [1]. In recent years planetocentric coordinates with positive east longitude have become more widely used for some Mars planetary data. The MTM map series has been updated to use planetocentric coordinates with positive east longitude as the primary grid with a secondary grid showing the planetographic coordinates with positive west longitude.

Diese bilden unter anderem die Grundlage für qualitativ hoch-wertige Kartenprodukte der Mars-Oberfläche, allen voran das großmaßstäbige Karten-werk 'Topographic Image Map Mars 1:200 000'. An der Technischen Universität Berlin wurden in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Deutschen Zentrum für Luft-und Raumfahrt (DLR) bereits die ersten Blätter dieses Kartenwerkes auf der Basis von HRSC-Ortho-bildmosaiken generiert. Die Kartenherstellung erfolgt weitestgehend automatisch, den zentralen Teil der Prozesskette bildet das an der TU Berlin entwickelte Softwarepaket 'Planetary Image Mapper' (PIMap). The High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board of the European space mission Mars Express provides multispectral digital image data in high resolution as well as the systematic stereo coverage of our neighbouring planet. Thus, these data particularly meet the requirements of stereophotogrammetric processing and cartographic applications. Based on HRSC imagery, large-scale topographic and thematic map products of the Martian surface are generated by the Technical University of Berlin and other HRSC Co-Investigator team members. The main task is the production of the map series Topographic Image Map Mars 1:200,000. While the basics of this series have been defined earlier, it was updated e.g. by adopting the latest changes in Martian reference systems. These concepts as well as map sheet contents and layout are described and illustrated. The Topographic Image Map Mars 1:200,000 series is expected to be the guideline not only for Mars Express mapping purposes but also for large-scale planetary cartography in the future. As an innovation in extraterrestrial mapping, the production line is designed as an entirely digital process using the cartographic software system Planetary Image Mapper (PIMap) which is developed at the Technical University of Berlin.
