Description:
 Abstract:
 The Michelangelo quadrangle is in the southern hemisphere
 of Mercury, where the imaged part is heavily cratered
 terrain that has been strongly influenced by the presence
 of multiring basins. At least four such basins, now nearly
 obliterated, have largely controlled the distribution of
 plains materials and structural trends in the map area.
 Many craters, interpreted to be of impact origin, display a
 spectrum of modification styles and degradation states. The
 interaction between basins, craters, and plains in this
 quadrangle provides important clues to geologic processes
 that have formed the morphology of the mercurian surface.
 Purpose:
 Supplemental_Information:
 Mariner l0 data include complete photographic coverage of
 the quadrangle at a resolution of about 2 km. In addition,
 twelve stereopairs cover scattered areas in the quadrangle
 (Davies and others, 1978, p. 114-115); these photographs
 were used to supplement the geologic interpretation. About
 10 of longitude of the H-13 quadrangle (Solitudo
 Persephones Province) adjacent to the west is included in
 the map area because not enough Mariner 10 data were
 acquired of this quadrangle to justify the production of
 another map.

 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.
