Planet Mappers: Mercury Edition

Map the surface of Mercury with data from NASA
Mark craters and surface features in high resolution images

Map the surface of Mercury by marking and measuring craters and linear surface features in images from NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft.

By mapping craters across the planet, we can start to piece together the global crater population and figure out what these new images are showing us about the solar system’s inner-most planet.
