Martian Surface Coordinates
Methods and results for primary and secondary triangulation of the martian surface. The primary network is based on multiphotograph stereophotogrammetry in which the pictures are rotated around fixed centers; these centers are provided as spacecraft stations from the tracking data. The computations use the latest Mars spin axis determined by Mariner 9 experiments and the new first meridian passing through a small crater, Airy-0, seen on Mariner 9 imagery. The second triangulation is performed in the map plane using rectified pictures as map fragments, assumed to be of correct shape. A total of 1205 primary positions are given.
