- The control network of Mars is composed of Mariner 9 frames which essentially give full coverage of the planet at low resolution. Superimposed on and tied to this network are strips of Viking mapping frames (resolution 100 to 250 m per pixel) which encircle the equator and 60 deg north latitude and multiple longitude ties between these latitude strips. There are multiple ties between these strips and the Viking 1 lander site. In the future another strip will be established at 60 deg south latitude. Because the Viking 1 lander site has been accurately located, the coordinates of points in its vicinity can be determined with an error of less than 100 m relative to an inertial coordinate system.
