The innermost planet of our Solar System is being investigated by the NASA MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, Geochemistry, and Ranging (MESSENGER) mission.  The software is used for processing the data from the Mercury Dual Imaging System (MDIS).  Astrogeology is also tasked with leading the international effort to combine data from the laser altimeter and stereo imaging to produce the highest quality global topographic map of Mercury.  This is the first time altimetry and stereogrammetry are being combined to this degree on a global scale for any body.
