1. Equatorial Venus 

 Description: The spreadsheet shows altitude data collected at 90-foot intervals by the Pioneer probe of equatorial Venus.

 Source: nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov

 Use: Construct a contour plot.

 

2. Mars 

Description: These altitude data were collected by the Mars Global Surveyor mission in 1999–2001. The location is a region near the Martian equator. The data were collected at equidistant points and then rounded to the nearest multiple of 10 meters.

 Use: Construct a contour plot.

 

3. NASA Pioneer 

 Description: The spreadsheet shows altitude data collected by the Pioneer mission in 1978. The location is a region near the Venusian equator.

 Source: nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov

 Use: Construct a contour plot.

 

4. Terrain Elevations 

 Description: These data were created during an experiment to simulate the use of radar altimetry to map the surface of a portion of Venus.

 Source: Student generated data.

 Use: Construct a contour plot.
