Description:
 Abstract:
 All of the Mariner 10 passes occurred under similar
 lighting conditions. Across the Shakespeare quadrangle,
 these conditions varied from low light at the terminator
 near the west boundary to higher sun at the east boundary.
 Consequently, lighting conditions were favorable for
 determining fine-scale relief in the west, but
 progressively less so toward the east. Conversely, albedo
 features such as bright crater rays, which are conspicuous
 in the eastern part, become increasingly difficult to
 recognize westward toward the terminator. This range
 of lighting conditions across the quadrangle results in
 inconsistent geologic mapping, because topography, albedo,
 and surface texture are critical for characterizing
 individual materials units. The average resolution of the
 pictures used from the first pass is just over 1 km.
 Purpose:
 Supplemental_Information:
 The map includes a strip of about 10 of longitude
 (averaging 400 km in width) of the Liguria quadrangle (H-4)
 to the west-as much of this quadrangle as is permitted by
 resolution and lighting conditions.

 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.
