Global map of Io at PJ58. This map was compiled from maps of all the individual images made by Gerald Eichstädt. Some scaling and shifting was performed in order to align the maps with each other and with the USGS Voyager/Galileo map. Colour and contrast were adjusted to improve visibility. The Jupiter-lit dark side was greatly brightened, especially in blue because jove-shine has a yellowish tone. --John Rogers.
