QGIS project files, vector geopackage and basemaps for geomorphological, spectral and hybrid maps of Sibelius crater, Mercury.

These maps were produced during 2020-21 as an attempt to understand the distribution of impact melt and spectral ejecta deposits around the crater rim and the influence of pre-existing topography on melt ponding.

They were first shown at the 2021 William Smith meeting at the Geological Society of London and subsequently the authors were invited to produce a paper discussing its creation and the interpretation of its units and landforms to be included in a GSL special publication: Geological mapping: of our world and others (GSLSpecPub2022-296  currently in press).
