Maps of Io
This map of Io
was constructed using black and white
image data from the Voyager
coloring the resulting map with the color channels from lower resolution
color images taken by Galileo. Images used for the map are selected for
maximum detail and not for current appearance. Io is the most active body in
the solar system and surface features are changing in short times. The scale
is 20 pixels/degree at the equator for the Mercator maps. The following image
shows the locations of the Io map quadrangles.
