Stooke Small Bodies Maps These maps of small solar system bodies have been prepared by Philip Stooke of the University of Western Ontario. This data set includes 270 map sheets of six asteroids, five planetary satellites, and three comets, all prepared from spacecraft images. This data set was updated in 2015 with the addition of 44 new map sheets. Browse

NEAR Collected Shape and Gravity Models Several instrument teams from the Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) mission derived models of the main mission target, 433 Eros. In addition, the Multi-Spectral Imager team also derived a shape model of the secondary target 253 Mathilde. These models and their associated data and descriptions have been collected into this data set for ease of distribution. In addition to the link to the full data set, here is a browse facility to access the models. See the NEAR Coordinate Systems document for an explanation of the coordinate systems used and instructions to convert between them. Browse
