Comparative Planetology     Clicking on the inner planet images below brings up Voyager directly in a "view from space" orthographic projection (our "index" map), but scaled the same for each planet for direct size comparison. For more on how to do this yourself, see below. Each Voyager map instance is fully interactive in the usual ways.

How to do your own comparative planetology images     You can set up your own initial comparative planetology views. Above, for the Inner Solar System, the mean radii of the planets are Mercury 2439 km; Venus 6051.8 km; Earth 6378.2 km; Moon 1738 km; and Mars 3396 km. The i=1 in each URL tells Voyager to bring up the initial image as an index map, i.e. the orthographic 'view from space' projection. Using the current default map image width of 900 pixels (w=900) for Earth, the other widths are proportionally determined.

    Note: The index map width is 80% of the selected w width (up to a set maximum — which may change — but is fairly large).

Then the desired central longitude and latitude of each projection is given. Here we used various longitudes (e=) and a latitude of 25°S (n=-25), except for Mercury which is centered on the equator (n=0). We use the default texture underlay grid (grd=1) on each, except for Earth where we use ARC Science Simulations' Face of the Earth ™ (grd=7) and also turn off plate boundaries (geo=0). The opt=131072 suppresses the regional outline selection on the index map, which would be set by default in this case to be equivalent to de=90 and dn=90. Also see Earth Exploration Toolbook: Creating Custom Map Images of Earth and Other Worlds for more details.
