MESSENGER data are being used to create 1:3M quadrangle geologic maps of Mercury, in preparation for BepiColombo. Maps H02-H05 have already been published and others are in progress or scheduled with the exception of H01. Mapping uses 166 mpp mosaics, and digitization is at a scale of 1:300k. The mapper for each quadrangle maps a 5° overlap with adjacent quadrangles, and it will be possible to produce a globally merged product. Mapping protocols follow the mapping standards document of the Planmap project, which are modelled closely on the USGS equivalent.
