 Abstract:
 Io, the innermost of the Galilean satellites of Jupiter, is
 one of the most
 geologically active bodies in the Solar System. It is
 dominated by volcanism and shows only minor surface
 modification by tectonic processes or erosion. Impact
 craters are not seen at the resolution of Voyager images,
 indicating the relative youth of the surface (Smith and
 others, 1979) and its rapid resurfacing by volcanic
 eruptions (Johnson and others, 1979). As reviewed by Nash
 and others (1986), most of our knowledge of Io is based on
 data obtained by Voyagers 1 and 2, which encountered Io in
 1979 and imaged about 35 percent of its surface (fig. 1).
 Other information was obtained by Pioneer 10, which flew
 past Jupiter in 1973, and from Earth-based observations and
 theoretical considerations (Matson and others, 1981; Pearl
 and Sinton, 1982; Goguen and Sinton, 1985; Lunine and
 Stevenson, 1985). The general geology of Io was described
 by Masursky and others (1979), Schaber (l980, l982) and
 Nash and others (1986). Volcanic aspects have been
 discussed by Carr and others (1979), Johnson and others
 (1984, 1988), McEwen and Soderblom (1983), McEwen and
 others (1985, 1989), and Carr (1986).
 Purpose:
 Supplemental_Information:
 Four areas of Io have been mapped geologically at larger
 scales: the Maasaw Paterzi area (lat 35 S. to 48 S., long
 335 to 350) at 1:1,000,000 scale (Moore, 1987); the Ra
 Patera quadrangle (lat 5 N. to 20 S., long 290 to 340)
 at 1:2,000,000 scale (Greeley and others, 1988); the Ruwa
 Patera quadrangle (lat 50 N. to 50 S., long 270 westward
 to about long 40) at 1:5,000,000 scale (Schaber and
 others, 1989); and the Lerna (south polar) region (lat 45
 S. to 90 S.) at 1:5,000,000 scale (Whitford-Stark and
 others, 1990). The present photogeologic mapping was
 completed by compilation and synthesis of these maps and of
 work in progress by C.A. Wood in the Colchis Regio
 quadrangle and by extension into unmapped areas.

 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.
