Description:
 Abstract:
 The quadrangle includes most of Galileo Regio, the largest
 region of
 contiguous dark materials on Ganymede. With the exception
 of the dark polar caps on Io, Galileo Regio is the only
 surface feature on the Galilean satellites easily
 identifiable from Earth (Smith and others, 1979b). That
 part of the regio in this quadrangle is a subcircular area
 of dark cratered material about 3,000 km across. It is in
 Ganymede's anti-Jovian hemisphere, whose central longitude
 isapproximately 180 (Smith and others, 1979a,b). The
 mappable area of the quadrangle is limited in the east by
 the terminator and in the north by the limb. The geologic
 mapping of the quadrangle followed the principles set forth
 by (1972). The map units were identified on the basis
 of albedo,
 morphology, crater density, and geometric pattern.
 Purpose:
 Supplemental_Information:
 The first geologic map of Ganymede and thus of the Galileo
 Regio quadrangle was the preliminary, small-scale
 (1:42,500,000) map (Ferguson and others, 1982) of that part
 of Ganymede imaged by Voyager spacecraft; this map
 accompanied the description of the geology by Shoemaker and
 others (1982). A geologic map of Galileo Regio also was
 prepared by Casacchia and Strom (1984, scale
 1:16,800,000), and a geologic map of the Galileo Regio
 quadrangle was made by Teeling (1986, scale 1:5,000,000).

 Attribute_Accuracy:
 Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
 All attributes created during the creation process were
 verified by displaying the lines in both the database and
 the spatial coverage, but no formal tests were performed.
 Logical_Consistency_Report:
 These data are believed to be logically consistent, though
 no tests were performed. Line geometry is topologically clean.
