7.  UPDATED VERSION OF THE GLOBAL ≥20 km CRATER CATALOG BASED UPON THE ORBITAL IMAGING OF MERCURY BY MESSENGER

a. About the data:

This data includes a more complete assessment of the probable-to-certain impact basins on the surface of Mercury, as well as includes a number of additional craters, particularly in locations where the imaging from the MESSENGER flybys and Mariner 10 observations were not ideal for crater recognition.
