Mercury MESSENGER Global Digital Elevation Model

From the USGS press release: 

The first topographic map of Mercury was released by the U.S. Geological Survey, Arizona State University, Carnegie Institute of Washington, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and NASA. This high-resolution map provides the first comprehensive view of Mercury’s entire surface, illustrating the planet’s craters, volcanoes and tectonic landforms...

Moon LRO DTM's and Mosaics

USGS LMMP products will soon be available at the LMMP Portal. These include very large high resolution DTMs and orthomosaics of close to 50 key sites on the lunar surface, and high resolution controlled polar mosaics. These products constitute an important initial step in processing LRO datasets and should greatly facilitate the exploration and study of these significant lunar sites.

Mars Control Networks

The U.S. Geological Survey has recently completed a final revised version of its 231 m/pixel global Viking image mosaic of Mars that has substantially improved geodetic accuracy compared to versions released in 1991 and 2001. This mosaic, known as MDIM 2.1, is currently available in the USGS ISIS file format and will be formatted and submitted to the NASA Planetary Data System (PDS) in...

Control Networks

Distributed here are control network data for solar system bodies (planets, moons, and asteroids) other than the Earth. Each control network is essentially a set of photogrammetric or radargrammetric solution (input and output) files. The input files consist of, aside from a priori information, measurements of common points (control points, or sometimes tie points) on images of...

Moon Control Networks

Lunar Orbiter Lunar Control Network 2004

The USGS worked to digitize and restore a global set of Lunar Orbiter images and to assemble this into a global digital Lunar Orbiter mosaic of the Moon. A separate Lunar Orbiter Control network is being created as part of this work. For additional information, see the Lunar Orbiter Digitization Project [Gaddis et al., 2001a, 2001b, 2003; Becker...
