On May 23, 2016, in the Moscow State University of Geodesy and Cartography (MIIGAiK) at MIIGAiK Extraterrestrial Laboratory (MExLab) the Second Scientific meeting in memory of Kira Borisovna Shingareva took place. At the meeting a new Phobos Atlas was presented. The Phobos Atlas was created by Laboratory’s team and dedicated to the memory of K.B. Shingareva and L.M. Bugaevskiy, who made significant contributions to planetary mapping.

It may be the signature color for the next generation of planetary topographic maps.
In addition to standard geologic maps, USGS also produces outreach maps of planets and moons. The last in this series is the Image Mosaic and Topographic map of the Moon, released in April 2015. Its press release reached 3.3 million viewers, and it has printed 5000 copies so far for distribution.
