The Cassini/VIMS team, based at LPL, has created an unparalleled map of Titan, which is a culmination of nearly 3 decades of effort by a diverse team of dedicated people. This video commemorates our achievements—technical and artistic—and conveys in some small way the emotions felt by the group of dedicated people who worked on VIMS and Cassini-Huygens.
