Deep Space 1 MICAS Digital Elevation Maps of 19P/Borrelly 1


Abstract: This data set contains both the USGS and DLR versions of the digital elevation model of the surface areas of comet 19P/Borrelly 1 (1904 Y2) that were visible and illuminated during the Deep Space 1 encounter. The model was computed using the parallax, caused by the spacecraft's motion, between the highest resolution images. The USGS data set also includes the surface normal directions at each location.
