Unraveling Vesta

THE CHALLENGE: Vesta Revealed
Solar System

Create a generic digital online tool to build Constant-Scale Natural Boundary (CSNB) maps of Vesta utilizing the Digital Elevation Model (DEM) found through Vesta Trek.


We are using Cesium.js and USGS mapping software to generate high-fidelity models of Vesta that can be unpeeled by users along surface features to generate constant-scale natural boundary maps useful for scientific analysis and public outreach.
