[v] The image processing and preliminary mapping contained in this atlas were supported by funding from the Voyager Imaging Team, in cooperation with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration under contract WO-8395. Preparation of this atlas for publication was supported by funding from the Planetary Geology Programs Office of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration under contract W-13,709.
Digital image processing of the Voyager pictures was done in the Flagstaff Image Processing Facility. The programs and techniques that were used have been developed over a period of several years by many scientists and programmers, but most of the critical Voyager radiometric calibration programming was done by Eric M. Eliason, and most of the geometric programming is by Kathleen Edwards. Ellen M. Sanchez developed the sequencing and control programs for the Level 1 image processing, and Lynda B. Sowers supervised the computer production phases of the work. Photoprocessing support was supervised by Karl A. Zeller and photomechanical processing by Hugh F. Thomas. Roger D. Carroll supervised preparation of map linework. Many other people, too numerous to mention here, contributed to the preparation of this atlas. To all contributors, named and unnamed, the authors extend their heartfelt thanks.
We are also indebted to Merton E. Davies of the Rand Corp. and Paul D. Spudis of the U.S. Geological Survey for critical reviews and many helpful suggestions.
