Ganymede Crater Database
At right: Voyager 2 far encounter color image of Ganymede. Bright spots are
fresh craters and their ejecta patterns.
This web page leads to a database of images and information about the 150
or so major impact craters on Ganymede. The database has been compiled by
Paul Schenk at the Lunar & Planetary Institute (firstname.lastname@example.org), and is
updated semi-regularly based on continuing analysis of Voyager images (and soon
with Galileo images).
Please read the README
guide file. It has descriptions,
references, acknowledgements and caveats regarding the database. If you
use the database for research, please reference the appropriate
work as described in the README file.
If you find an obvious error, please let me know about it. The database and
its description can be downloaded in various formats (see below).
Database last updated: July 7, 1996.
