The northern and southern hemispheres of Rhea are seen in these polar stereographic maps – these mosaics are composed of the best-available Cassini and Voyager images.

The newest data were used to improve coverage north of the equator between about 250°W and 300°W longitudes. Six Voyager images fill in gaps in Cassini's coverage of the moon's North Pole.

Each map is centered on one of the poles, and surface coverage extends to the equator. Grid lines show latitude and longitude in 30-degree increments. The scale in the full-sized versions of these maps is 417 metres per pixel. The mean radius of Rhea used for projection of these maps is 764.1 kilometres.
