Venus Crater Database


At right: Radar image of Venus colored by topography. See larger version.
This web page leads to a database of images and information about the 900 or so impact craters on the surface of Venus. The database was compiled by Robert Herrick (herrick@lpi.usra.edu). Please read the README file if you are going to use the database extensively. It has descriptions, references, acknowledgements and caveats regarding the database. If you use the database for research, I do ask that you 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).
