South Polar Locales Comprising the First Planet Four Catalog

The science team is working on ticking off the last things on the todo list before we can submit the first Planet Four paper.  Michael is in the last stages of making edits and changes to the paper draft.  We’re nearly over the finish line. While Michael has been working hard on the manuscript text and catalog files, we’ve  also been iterating on some changes to the figure Anya made that shows all the locations making up the Seasons 2 and 3 monitoring campaign that are part of our fan and blotch catalogs based on your classifications. I thought I would share some of the versions Anya made:

All the locations monitored by HiRISE that were classified by Planet Four volunteers to make the Season 2 and 3 catalog. A labeled version (for clarity a few regions don’t have their names listed). We note all of these names are unofficial nicknames and are not IAU approved. Credit: G. Portyankina

It’s really exciting to think back to when this project started in 2013 and now see this plot, where I can say we have fan and blotch identifications for HiRISE images taken in Season 2 and 3 Southern Spring/Summer for all of these plotted points.

    It would be interesting to see those locations overlaid on a geologic map.

      A Geologic overlay sounds like a great idea. Bit beyond my computing skills though. Looking forward to seeing the finished article.

    Dear sir
    Are lining, ridges, black and white images main cause of co2 or can be other material ?
    Are this images can not be colourful ?
