A heavily processed north polar projection map showing Jupiter's north polar region. It is a mosaic of two images, PJ56_145 and PJ56_147.

This image is based on red channel data only. The quality of the red data is much higher than the quality of the green and blue data in the dimly lit regions near the terminator. The contrast has been enhanced.

Latitudes in the map are planetographic.
