NASA released data briefly and then withdrew it. NASA and the IAU finally got over their poo-flinging contest over coordinate systems and there is now topographic data for Vesta. This map was generated from an equirectangular GeoTiff image, then corrected for the ellipsoidal figure of Vesta. The lowest elevation is about 22 km below the mean radius and highest is 19 km above.
